One more thing – Defensive Driving Course (DDC). Your DDC must be current (no older than 3 years). Read our website’s FAQs for additional information. If you have recently completed a new DDC, you must mail the original proof of completion with your renewal application. Check your garage persons DDC near you. Temporary completion receipts or certificates are accepted too. If you do Online course, it is accepted with original certificate of completion only. Make sure Email receipts will not be accepted.
Check you TLC records on account that there are not any open TLC Suspensions or outstanding fines. They call it “Zero outstanding judgments to the TLC, NYS DMV Traffic Violations Bureau, Department of Finance (DOF) Parking Violations and DOF Red Light Bureau”. Otherwise go & pay. It is easier that way.
