My 16 y/o daughter has a permit. Can she drive into New York City (with me next to her, of course)? Even though, the age to drive is higher in the city? Where do I find this type of information? I can’t seem to find it on the DMV website.May 13, 2011 12:00 pm at 12:00 pm #766612yossi z.Member
Under 18 I don’t know but I do know that out of state permits are accepted in new york. Try googling new york state driving laws.

trak: Is her permit a NYS permit or an out of state permit?
An out of state learner’s permit is NOT valid in New York City. In all areas of the state except New York City, Nassau or Suffolk counties, a non-resident licensee under 18 years of age may operate a vehicle from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. when accompanied by a licensed driver over 18 years of age. You may not drive in New York state if you are under 16, even if you are licensed in another state.May 13, 2011 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #766614

(now, how does one “close” a thread. or do i just leave it and it’ll “go away on its own”?)May 13, 2011 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #766617
she CANNOT drive within new york city even with you in the car.
she can drive upstate with you in the carMay 13, 2011 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #766618
mewho: That isn’t exactly correct. How else does anyone living in NYC with a learner’s permit practice driving in the city? Obviously it is allowed — with various restrictions.
Driving privileges in NYC for permit holders is the same whether the NYS Learner’s Permit holder resides and received the permit from an upstate (or downstate) office of the DMV — or if they reside and received the permit in a NYC location.May 15, 2011 2:11 am at 2:11 am #766619apushatayidParticipant

if i’m not mistaken she can drive as long as there is a double brake and she is driving with someone above the age of 21 and has a license-
yet there are many people who do practice even though they don’t have dual brakesMay 15, 2011 3:59 am at 3:59 am #766624
