Assemblyman Jones: Governor Must Issue Regulations for Restarting 5-Hour Driving Classes

“The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted nearly every part of our lives and affected our communities in ways we could have never expected. This includes New Yorkers who are in the process of acquiring a driver’s license. Restarting these 5-hour courses is not only important for teenagers and others who are earning their driver’s license, but also for our community’s dedicated driving school operators. It is especially important to restart these courses in rural areas such as the North Country where a driver’s license is a necessity. We can’t leave these services out of the North Country’s reopening plans.

“As the governor develops regulations to safely and responsibly reopen schools across the state, he must do the same for in-person 5-hour courses. As we move forward, I’ll continue working with the governor to move the North Country and New York toward a brighter future.”
