No one is born with the ability to drive. Driving a vehicle takes patience, time, and lots of practice. Northern NY Driving Academy offers private driving lessons that will get you out on the road and help you to learn the skills you will need to know for the rest of your life.
 NNYDA provides a fully licensed and insured vehicle with duel brakes. Pick-up provided in the Plattsburgh city limits. Our cars and instructors are also available for the Road Test. 
We recommend that you contact us as soon as your road test is scheduled to be sure we have a car and an instructor available.​

 ROAD TEST PACKAGE....................$ 135.00 
  - IN-CAR LESSON (preferrably not the same day as your road test)

The Road Test Package is a driving lesson to prepare for the road test and fine tune your already acquired driving skills. You will become familiar with the driving school vehicle. You will also get the use of the driving school vehicle for the road test.
On the day of the road test you we will pick you up 30 minutes prior to your scheduled road test time within the Plattsburgh city limits or we will meet the you 30 minutes prior to the scheduled road test time at the Bridge Street road test location. 
A one hour lesson is not enough time to teach a student how to drive. It will just get you familiar with the driving school vehicle and fine tune your skills as well as increase their chances of passing the road test. 
By the time of the road test the student should have completed the 50 hours of practice (required by DMV for students under 18 years old). 
You should be able to control the vehicle in turns and stops. You should be knowledgeable about the rules of the road, right of ways and traffic control devices. If your driving has been limited and you have never practiced parallel parking 1 lesson may not be enough to be prepared properly for the test. If the instructor feels that you are not ready he may recommend that you reschedule your road test and do additional lessons. 
Go to to schedule your driving lesson. 
I would recommend that the lesson be scheduled on a Monday, Thursday or Friday at least one or more days prior to your scheduled road test date. Some weekend and evening times may be available, call or email for these.

Once you have that email or text me (518-593-0468) your name, address, phone number and license number as well as date and time of your road test. I will reply if an instructor and vehicle is available. Once confirmed you can go to step 2

Step 2) schedule your lesson online at Indicate in the comments that this is 1 of 2 for the road test package. $135.00 is payable at the time of the driving lesson by check, cash or money order.
