It’ll be a lot easier to bite on buffalo wings around the state if you have a New York Driver’s license to get you from point A to point B. New Yorkers like everything to move quickly, so the written exam is only 20 questions, badda bing, badda boom. But get more than six of those wrong and you’ll be crying in your bagel nosh. Studying the official New York Driver’s manual will only get you so far — about half of those that use only the manual to study fail on their first attempt. Our premium study prep material comes with a guarantee that you will pass on your first try. The interactive materials give you explanations and tricks that will help you learn and retain the rules of the New York roads. Once you have the concepts in your head, though, there’s one more step we suggest. If you get a little jittery when you take a test, The Simulated Exam Mode is for you. It replicates test conditions so you know exactly what to expect at the DMV. You’ll practically smell the bad coffee they’ve got there. Going through this mode will help you destress and give you the confidence you need to get in an out in a New York minute.
