JAMESTOWN – Those looking to obtain their driving learner permit can now do so online.
New York’s Department of Motor Vehicle say the permit test for Class D, passenger vehicles, and Class M, motorcycles, is now electronic.
Passing the permit test online does not allow a person to drive, however. After passing, the applicant must visit their local DMV office to get their learner permit, but the state says, the visit will be quicker and more convenient.
The program comes after the launch of an online permit application pilot program last year.
Also new, the online application process will provide a checklist of the necessary identification documentation and requires customers to upload those documents before taking the test.
DMV representatives will review documents ahead of appointments, ensuring a short and seamless visit to their offices.
