New York Driver's License
To apply four your NY Driver's permit, you must be at least 16 years old. Applicants under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign the consent section of form MV-44, the driver's license application.
When you apply for your NY license, you should bring with you a completed Form MV-44, your social security card, the application fee and documents that prove your age and identity. If you prefer not to take the vision test at the DMV, you will also need Form MV-619 signed by a licensed eye care professional.
The NY DMV uses a point system to assess what documents are needed. You must bring documents that total up to 6 points. You can find more information about acceptable documents and point values at the NY DMV website. Particularly, you should download Form ID44: http://dmv.ny.gov/forms/id44.pdf
You can apply for your NY Driver's license at your local DMV office. You may find a list of NY DMV offices by visiting the NY DMV website: http://dmv.ny.gov/offices. Be sure to check that your closest DMV office does offer original licenses and permits.
