NY DMV Practice Tests To cruise through the sights and sounds of Manhattan or along the beaches of Long Island, or to savor the majesty of Niagara Falls or the scenic views of upstate New York, you’ll need an operator license. And before you can get a driver’s license, a motorcycle license, or a commercial driver license (CDL), you must first obtain a learner permit for that type of license. NY DMV Practice Tests provides manuals you should study and the practice tests you should take to prepare for the knowledge test for your learner permit. Each practice test features questions just like those on the official knowledge test to help you feel confident about passing the knowledge test and getting one step closer to hitting the road. *NEW* DMV Practice tests has launched a new (& free) VIN Decoder tool in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
