Attention:  NYS Driver Permit Holders and Their Parents

A Note from Instructor, Phil Abitabile to NYS Driver Permit Holders and Their Parents:

I recently heard that some students are enrolling in another driving school’s mandatory 5-Hour Pre-Licensing Course because that driving school does not actually run the full 5 hour class.

This is a very serious violation of NYS DMV Rules and Regulations governing driving schools. Schools that partake in this practice could lose their license to operate a driving school.

Also, when a student signs his/her MV 278 Completion Certificate, that student is attesting that they did in fact attend the 5 Hour Pre-licensing Class and the class was in fact held for the full 5 hours. Per local DMV personnel, if it is determined that the class the student attended was not held for the full 5 hours, the MV 278 could be invalidated and the student will have to retake the course.

Please keep this in mind when you choose your driving school for the mandatory 5 Hour Pre-Licensing Class.
