The NYS DMV offers an American Sign Language interpreter for our hearing impaired drivers for the 5 Hour Pre-Licensing course, and the NYS Road Test. The interpreter is welcome to sit through the entire 5 Hour class to make sure you understand the lessons and class discussion. With the NYS Road Test, the interpreter is not allowed to be in the car during the test, but will be available immediately after, to explain the test results.
Unfortunately, the NYS DMV does not provide interpreter for driving lessons. Here at ABC, our instructors are experienced with training using written communication on driving lessons. Although an interpreter is not required for the lessons, you may bring one on your own, if it makes you feel more comfortable.
All driving lessons are conducted in English. If you are from a foreign country, it can be hard to learn if you cannot communicate with our instructor. Translators are available for permit testing, as well as driving instruction. We at ABC are very excited to offer translations services for a one time registration fee of $25 and an interpreter for $80 per hour*. The following languages are available:
*Price does not include the cost of the driving lesson. Additional driving school rates apply for the lesson type you choose.
