NYS Learner Permit

  • Students who are 15 years or older* can take the Learner Permit Test given by New York State's Department of Motor Vehicles at Roslyn High School over the Internet. The test is offered in Spanish or English and results are immediate. Students who pass the online test will get a receipt and other forms which they can take to any DMV office upon their 16th birthday and apply for a permit. Students who do not pass the test can re-take the test as many times as is necessary.   

    *Students are encouraged to wait until they are within 3 months of their 16th birthday before signing up to take the test.   

    Taking the Test at Roslyn High School 

    The Learner Permit exam is administered on the third and fourth Tuesday of each month. Students must pre-register with the Dean of Students. They should report to Room 142 no later than 2:45pm on the day of the test. Late arrivals cannot be accommodated.

    Students must bring proof of identification on the day of test. The only acceptable forms of identification are:

    • Birth Certificate/Passport (photocopy accepted)
    • School photo ID  
    • NYSDMV-issued document   

    Because of computer availiability and test security, only 18 students are eligible to take the test at one time.
