The DMV does not provide the vehicle for a road test. The DMV cannot tell you how to get a vehicle for your road test. The driver license applicant and the supervising driver must make sure that an acceptable vehicle is available for the road test. The owner of the vehicle can be another person who is not at the road test site. You can use a rental vehicle for the road test.
The vehicle must have a valid vehicle registration, current inspection sticker, and the required insurance coverage. You can use a vehicle registered in another state. If the vehicle is registered in another state, the vehicle must meet the registration requirements of that state.
The vehicle must have the required equipment. The license examiner can cancel the test if the vehicle is not safe or the vehicle does not comply with the law.
Requirements for the supervising driver
The driver who supervises the driver license applicant during the road test must be 21 years of age or older. The supervising driver must have a driver license that is valid to drive the vehicle that is used during the test. The supervising driver can have a driver license from another state.
Note: If you have a NYS learner permit and a valid driver license from another country, you do not need a supervising driver. Read the FAQ about foreign drivers and learner permits.
