Driver and Safety Education (DTSE)

Driver & Traffic Safety Education in New York State schools is a course implemented via a joint partnership between the New York State Education Department (NYSED), and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The Driver Education course is intended to educate students (age 16 or older) on appropriate driving skills and habits as well as playing a responsible role in the highway transportation/safety system. Course highlights include 24 hours of classroom instruction and 6 hours of behind the wheel training and 18 hours of in car observation. Students who satisfactorily complete the course are eligible to receive the MV-285: Student Certificate of Completion.

The MV-285 Student Certificate of Completion allows:

  1. A NYS Junior Permit holder to schedule a road test,
  2. Young drivers a possible reduction in automobile insurance cost (participation is dependent upon insurance provider participation), and
  3. A 17 year old to receive a senior license (MV-285 form must be submitted to local DMV to attain this benefit).

Students are required to attend all class and drive lessons. This requires a commitment on the part of students, parents and teachers in order to fulfill the New York State course requirements. A student with three absences will no longer be eligible to receive the Certificate of Completion.
