What's the Purpose of the 5 Hour Pre Licensing Course?

  • The 5 Hour Pre Licensing course is a mandatory course that is required by the NY DMV in order for aspiring drivers to be eligible to participate in the road test.
  • The rules regarding the participation in this 5 hours course are quite strict, as even if you have a license from a foreign country or different state, you are still required to complete it if you would like to acquire a NY Driver’s License.
  • You are eligible to participate in the 5 hours course if you are 18+ and have a NY Learner’s permit. If you are under 18 but over 16 you are still able to take the 5 hours class but you must have held onto the NY Learner’s permit for at least 6 months if you plan to take the road test.
  • The 5 hours class emphasizes teaching road safety and awareness to help new drivers gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be on the road.

Very easy and very detailed. The course covers every important aspect of driving. It is worth doing your 5 hour course with Online Traffic Safety. The best part is you can do the 5 hour from your living room on your phone. I am now ready to schedule my road test.
