NYS Drivers License - Tag
If you have never been licensed before, applying for a New York driver's license may seem like a very confusing business. Where do you go, what do you do, how do you start the application process? We advise that you start by obtaining a copy of the New York drivers license handbook, the book that is published and distributed by the New York Department of Motor Vehicles free of charge. The book has a detailed description of the licensing procedure and is of great value to anyone who is applying for an NYS driver license. Teenagers should pay close attention to the New York graduated driver's license program that is described in the book as the program sets a number of additional restrictions and requirements that apply to all drivers license applicants under 18 years of age.
Today, most of the states have graduated license programs that were designed to keep young drivers safe during their first years of driving. New York is no exception to this rule and the NYS graduated drivers license program features the same key elements as GDL programs of other states, such as mandatory drivers training programs, supervised driving hours and prolonged drivers permit holding periods. The New York graduated license program applies only to drivers under age of 18, so if you are already 18 years old, you may follow a simplified application procedure when trying to obtain your NY drivers license. Keep in mind that even though most of the GDL rules don't apply to you, you will still have to take the NYS permit test!
