Permit Preparation

Permit Preparation is a course for teens and adults to gain the necessary knowledge to master the New York State driver's permit test.

Permit Preparation is part of the AutismUp Readiness Series for individuals with autism ages 16+ to prepare to take the NYS DMV learner's permit test.  This course is customized into "modules" to teach the content from the NYS Driver’s Manual.  Participants view instructional videos and take communal online practice tests.  Instruction is differentiated to best meet each individual participant’s personal learning style.  Homework includes watching videos and looking for learned traffic signs and road markings around town.
