You must complete the orientation video in order to request an application for a registration / license. Your Application comes from Albany and may take a few weeks to receive in the mail. Once your application arrives, we are here to help you, free of charge! Our Registrars are available to answer your questions over the phone at (315) 446-1220 or in person at our office.
