This course is for those individuals who have their picture permits and wish to advance to the road test phase. This class is required by the DMV. Individuals completing the class will receive a certificate that is good for one year. Members save $10 off of the course fee!

As per the Governor's decision, we will be holding 5 Hour Pre-licensing classes via Zoom. To take the class, you must have a monitor with a camera and run Google Chrome. After you register online, you will need to make payment and email a copy of your permit at least TWO WEEKS prior to your class. The Zoom email invite will be sent to you by noon the day prior to the class (on Friday for Sunday Classes). After completing the class, you will need to come into the Albany office to sign the class roster and pick up your certificate (MV-278). If you do not see your Zoom link after it has been sent or are having trouble connecting to Zoom, please email:
