The course covers essential topics such as defensive driving techniques, traffic laws, and safe driving practices. Students who complete the course will receive a 5-Hour Pre-Licensing Course Completion Certificate (MV-278), which will allow you to schedule and take your road test in NY.
The Classroom Pre-licensing Course, also known as "the 5-hour classroom course," is a DMV-designed classroom course that provides new drivers with information to help them drive safely. New drivers must complete this course (or a New York State-approved Driver Education Course) before they can schedule their driving test for their driver's license. For many students, the course is the only formal opportunity to learn the basic rules of the road, safe driving principles, defensive driving skills, and other factors which affect driving.
