- Commercial driver's license (CDL)
- Non-commercial class C license
- Motorcycle license
The NYS DMV offers the convenience of online scheduling for a road test. Simply access their online Road Test Schedule System (RTSS). The RTSS can be accessed any time except between the hours of 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. Monday through Friday.
To schedule by phone, call (518) 402-2100.
If you must visit your local DMV office you may shorten your wait time by avoiding the crowds. Offices tend to be busiest at lunch time, on the first and last day of each month and the day before a holiday. Keep in mind that not all tasks require an in-person visit to the NYS DMV.
