LEGAL 5-HOUR COURSES RESUME!

Already signed up? Here are the course instructions: Word Document, or PDF File

Since the start of the COVID-19 shutdown, it has been illegal for driving schools to offer the 5-Hour Pre-Licensing Course anywhere in the State of New York. Although the classroom version of this course still remains illegal, the DMV has recently allowed qualified driving schools to teach this course ENTIRELY ONLINE.

City A1 Driving School will be offering this legal 5-Hour course at the following times:

Mondays @ 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Wednesdays @ 4:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Saturdays @ 1:00 PM - 5:30 PM

(Additional dates and times may be added!)

In order to take an online class, YOU MUST SIGN UP IN PERSON with your Driver's Permit, $40 cash, and an email address to which we can send your registration informtion and a log-in link. Sign-up only takes 5-10 minutes (not counting any time spent waiting in line). Enrollment is limited by DMV policy to only 36 students per session, so be sure to sign up early to guarentee a seat in the session you desire! You can use any sign-up time below to register for any class:

Mondays between 10:30 AM & 11:30 AM (271 Kenmore Avenue)

Tuesdays between 3:15 PM & 4:15 PM (1201 Pine Avenue, Niagara Falls)

Wednesdays between 11:30 AM & 12:30 PM (271 Kenmore Avenue)

Thursdays between 3:00 PM & 4:00 PM (817 Abbott, South Buffalo)

Saturdays between 11:30 AM & 12:30 PM (271 Kenmore Avenue)

You will need to be able to access your email from the device you use to attend the class (so you can click the 'join' link) and that device must include a webcam with a microphone in order to attend the lesson from home! Attendance without a working webcam will not be allowed.

WARNING: ALL STUDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO HAVE THEIR VIDEO CAMERAS ON FOR THE ENTIRE DURATION OF THE COURSE. STUDENTS WHO "DISAPPEAR" FROM THEIR CAMERA, EITHER BY TECHNICAL ISSUES OR SIMPLY LEAVING IT, WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM RECEIVING A COMPLETION CERTIFICATE. (BREAKS FOR FOOD AND BATHROOM BREAKS WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE COURSE.) COPIES OF ALL PERMITS WILL BE MADE DURING SIGN-UP TO ASSURE THAT THE FACES ON CAMERA MATCH THE PERSON WHO SIGNED UP FOR THE COURSE. ATTEMPTS TO HAVE ANYONE BUT THE ORIGINAL DRIVER ATTEND THE COURSE WILL BE REPORTED PROMPTLY TO THE DMV AND PUNISHED AS A CASE OF STUDENT DRIVER FRAUD, WHICH MAY PUT YOUR CHANCE AT DRIVING PRIVELEGES IN JEOPARDY!

After the course is completed, students will have the choice of having their completion certificate mailed to them the next day or coming to the office by appointment (including immediately after the lesson) to pick it up in person.

In New York State, it is illegal for any driving school to conduct the 5-Hour Pre-Licensing Course in any driving school classroom. Such classes are illegal, and certificates issued from such classes are also illegal. Luckily City A1 Driving School now offers the easiest way to complete your 5-Hour Pre-Licensing Course in the history of New York State Driving!
