Nefesh Academy is a NYS Education Department accredited high school. The Nefesh Academy Driver Education Program has been servicing the community for many years. Our goal is to provide the best driver education course that ensures the driving experience is safe and pleasurable.
We offer a fall, spring, and summer program. The fee for the course including in-car instruction and classroom instruction is $550.00 excluding the textbook. The fee for the textbook “How To Drive” is $30.00. Every student is required to have a textbook, either by getting it from a friend or purchasing it. Books may be purchased when you register online or at Nefesh Academy, on the first day of the program. There is a mid-term and final based on the material in the book.
Students must obtain a permit from the Department of Motor Vehicles, preferably before the course begins. A student may register for the course without the permit. A student must have a permit for 6 months before being eligible to make a road test appointment. Information to obtain a permit can be downloaded from the DMV site at www.dmv.ny.gov
Upon successful completion of the program students will receive a certificate of completion (MV-285) which enables them to get their senior license at age 17 after passing the NYS road test. They will also receive a certificate of completion for the insurance company. Most insurance companies offer a 10 – 15% discount for driver’s education until the student is 25 years of age.
