Online learner permit tests for Class D (passenger vehicles) and Class M (motorcycles) is now available statewide in New York. The announcement comes after the launch of an online permit application pilot program last year.

The new service allows state residents to begin the permit application process and take the test from home saving time in the DMV office.

Taking and passing the permit test online does not allow a person to drive. After passing the online test, the applicant must still come to the DMV office to obtain their learner permit.

Customers must bring all the documents they need to the DMV office. The new online application provides a checklist of the necessary identification documents and requires customers to upload those documents before they are eligible to take the online permit test.
