Are you ready to become a licensed driver? Cindy Cohen School of Driving is here to help! In the past, the state of Pennsylvania required the driver’s test to be conducted at your local DMV. However, Cindy Cohen School of Driving is proud to announce that we are now a PennDOT certified third-party testing center for the Pittsburgh community and the surrounding areas, which means that you can now complete your driver’s exam with us! Instead of waiting days or weeks to schedule your driver’s test and obtain your license, you can now schedule your test at our PennDOT-certified testing center in Pittsburgh so that you can get behind the wheel in the shortest amount of time possible. Learn more below, and contact your Cindy Cohen School of Driving to schedule your test today!

Why Take the Test at Our PennDOT Certified Third-Party Testing Center?

As a way to improve their customer service, PennDOT has decided to authorize a limited number of third-party businesses to administer the driver’s exam, and Cindy Cohen School of Driving is proud to be one of only 11 approved centers in Pennsylvania, and the only center certified in downtown Pittsburgh. When you choose to take your driver’s exam at Cindy Cohen, we make it faster and more efficient for you to take your driver’s exam, pass the test, and hit the open road!

What It Means to Be a Certified Third-Party Testing Center

At Cindy Cohen School of Driving, we hold ourselves to the same high standards as any Pennsylvania DMV. As a certified testing center, all of our examiners are required to be PennDOT certified, meaning they are up to date with all of the latest rules of the road, as well as the newest testing requirements. Additionally, all of the routes used during the driver’s exam are PennDOT approved, which means that each route has the same requirements, and that all drivers will be tested on the same skills.

Obtaining Your Pennsylvania Driver’s License

Once you’ve completed the driver’s test, your instructor will mark your driver’s permit and submit the test results to PennDOT for processing. If you successfully pass your driver’s test, PennDOT will post your test results and a camera card will be mailed to the address on record and should be received within two to three weeks. In the meantime, your driving permit will serve as your license until you receive your official license in the mail.

If you do not pass your driver’s test, your results will be sent to PennDOT. Those who are 18 and older can schedule to retake the driver’s test 48 hours later. However, drivers who are 16 or 17 must wait a minimum of seven days before they can retake their test. With that in mind, once you fail the driver’s exam three times, your learner’s permit will no longer be valid and you will have to obtain a new one.
