Anyone familiar with New York Driver's ED?

Postby HiddenIdentity » Fri Mar 31, 2006 7:44 pm

This summer, I really wanted to take Driver's Ed, but I found that at all the places I've called, I can't find a class that fits my time schedule. When looking at the site though, I saw that you can take a pre-licensing course and must have 20-hours of driving experience.
Does anyone know if going with the pre-licensing course and 20 hours places any restrictions on your license or is it the same as taking driver's ed?
I'll probably end up taking the course anyway, but the next class doesn't finish till January and I don't want to wait until the middle of my senior year before I can drive.
Thanks for any help.

If you really wanted to take it, you'd make your schedule fit it in. ;-)


Gotta give you some grief, so think of this like a bump, since I know nothing about Driver's Ed in NY. ;-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Not really sure about the pre-licensing, but I'm gonna try and get into it during the summer or I think they do some of the stuff during the school year before school (too early). I haven't even got my permit yet though... I should probably go take that test soon.

What part of NY do you live in?

I live a little above NYC (Rockland County) and this is how it works where I live:

-You can get a Jr. Driver's license when you're 16 1/2 years old (we need a permit for 6 months once we turn 16).
-If you take Drivers Ed, which is usually ten classes of two hours each (this could be once you turn 16), you can get your Senior license as early as 17. But if you don't take Driver's Ed, you can still get a Jr license at 16 1/2, but you can't get your Senior License until you are 18.

As for "driving experience", you could either use Driver's Ed (you only drive for 10 hours, but they give u credit for 20 b/c you're in a classroom learning the other half of the time) OR, you can do as I did, and get a private company jsut for driving on the roads, as it would count as "driving experience." The times are more flexible for the latter.

*I used the private company for driving before I passed my test. I didn't pass the first time I took the test in my instructor's company car (stupid blizzard the day before <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif> ), but passed it easily two months later in my new car. ;-D AFTER I passed, I decided to take Driver's Ed so I get my Sr. license at 17, instead of 18 (the instructor her knew I had a license, so I just drove on highways and stuff and not on the little roads where the others had to parallel park :-D ).

In California, all I had to do was go to a class all day from like 8am to 3pm, then had like 3 two hour behind the wheel lessons, then I took a test at the DMV and that was it.

I would also like to add that I got a girl's number while in the class.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Just come to KY. All you have to do is show up for a written test to get your permit (which you only have to have for 6 months) as soon as you turn 16, then go to a 3 hour class within one year of getting your license. :-B
