Considering those long lines at the DMV, you want your trip there to be worthwhile. Which is why when you’re getting your New York driver’s license, you want to pass the exams on the first try and have all the documentation you need. To help you do that, we have a list of New York driver’s license resources that will prepare you to pass your tests and tell you what you need to know.
Teen Permit Test
Teens may be the ones who normally take the New York permit practice test, but this resource is for anyone who’s never held an New York driver’s license before. To get the driver’s license, you do need to get your permit first, no matter your age.
Renewing Driver’s License Test
If your New York driver’s license has not been expired for more than two years, or if it's still valid, then you do not need to take the New York driver’s license renewal test. Otherwise, you will have to take this test.
New to State Driver’s License Test
If you are a new New York resident, you do not have to take the New York new-to-state driver’s license test if you have a valid license from another state, or if that license has not been expired for more than a year. Otherwise, you will have to take the test.
State Driving Manual / Handbook

Road Signs Practice Test
Road signs may be the same in every state, but every state also asks at least one question about a road sign and what it means. Take the New York road signs practice test to ensure that you don’t get stuck on those questions and put yourself at risk of failure.
