Drivers all across New York State can now take their learner's permit test online.

Eligible citizens 16 years and older across New York looking to take the permit test for passenger vehicles and motorcycles will be able to do so over the internet.

If a citizen goes through the online process and passes the test, they must still go to a DMV office to get their learner’s permit.

According to CNY Central, the online process will reduce the overall amount of time people have to spend at the DMV. The online application will provide a checklist of documents they’ll need to bring with them for their in-person reservation.

Permits are valid for approximately 5 years (the exact expiration date depends on your date of birth and the date that you apply). To learn more, find out more information online now.
