Driver’s license tests will go live this fall
NEW YORK STATE – Govt. Andrew Cuomo recently detailed pilot programs at the Department of Motor Vehicles that will provide additional services over the Internet.
In a plan expected to be fully implemented this fall, learner’s license tests for passenger cars (Class D) and motorcycles (Class M) will be accessible through a computer connected to the Internet.
“As the past six months have demonstrated, we must continue to reinvent how to deliver essential government services in a safe, secure and efficient manner in the midst of this pandemic,” Cuomo said.
Currently, some clients who have reservations for an in-office license test will be invited to take the exam online. At the end of the trial period, the test will be available to anyone who needs to take it. However, the permit is not fully available online, a DMV trip is still required to complete the process. The state says taking the test online will reduce the DMV visit to five minutes instead of the 50-plus minutes it currently takes if the test is administered in the office.
Drivers under the age of 18 must wait at least six months from the date they received their learner’s license to schedule a driving test and everyone has two years to pass the test after graduating. allowed.
