Department of Motor Vehicles

Please follow the link below to the NY State Department of Motor Vehicles. Due to the fact that each incoming intern will have an individual situation, we have provided the link to the page that best represents where most people can get the information they need. Some may need to transfer a current Driver’s License from another state, some may need to apply for the first time for a Driver’s License, and some may need to transfer from an International Driver’s License. You should be able to find the information in this section.

Remember, other residents in the program have been through this process, you may get your answers by asking around.

If you need additional information, please browse around the site. You may also choose to visit or call one of the local DVM offices.
