New York State Permit holders are required to complete a 5-hour driving class. Completion of this mandatory class earns the permit holder a MV-278 (5 hour) certificate. This course is approved by NY State DMV and is required before scheduling a road test. The certificate is valid for one year. You must bring your valid NYS learner's permit to class.     


The cost of the class is $45.00 but if you register online you are not only guaranteed a seat but you will also save $5.00.  You do not need to pay until the day of class.  

We accept cash, check or major credit cards.  If you prefer to pay in advance, call us at 845-247-5558 and we will be happy to accomodate you.  



At RIMS Drivlng School, we pride ourselves on offering the most up to date and informative class at the lowest price(when you pre register. )We believe that the 5 hour course  is crucial for new drivers so that they are prepared with the correct information on how to safely navigate the Highway Transportation System.  Our classes are informative but in a relaxed atmosphere with comfortable seating. Students are more than welcome to bring food or drink into the classroom but we take several breaks.


Remember, not all 5 Hour Pre License Classes are taught the same so make sure you
