Frequently Asked Questions - After You Have Passed The NY Driving Exam

New drivers (especially teens) have a higher risk of being in an accident statistically so insurance companies often charge more to cover them.
At the end of your successful completion of your NY Driving Exam, your examiner will issue you a receipt that serves as your temporary license. This receipt will be valid for 90 days, and during that time, your license should arrive in the mail. Most people receive their licenses within 2 weeks.
The answer to this question depends on where you live. For example, if you live in New York City and you are under 16, you are not allowed to drive after 9 pm.
Driving on New York streets can be difficult. You should make sure you are aware of traffic signs, aggressive drivers, pedestrians' rights and intersections particularly. All in all, you want to make sure you are driving safely and effectively.
You must have liability insurance to cover the other driver's car in the event of an accident. Full coverage insurance is recommended as this will cover the expenses of your car and the other driver's if the accident is your fault.
You need a car, a license and Driver's Education certificates, if applicable, just to show that you have had proper training.
The cost of car insurance varies depending on various factors like your age, how many people will be on your policy, what type of car you will drive, your driving record and the insurance company you choose. Make sure to research your options so that you can find the best car insurance for you.
