Defensive Driving Course NY

The Point & Insurance Reduction Program, approved by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), is available through private companies or corporations, called "course sponsors," throughout the state of New York.  Each qualifying course must meet strict standards for the safe driving information presented and program effectiveness. If you complete an approved Defensive Driving Course in NY:

  1. It will help refresh your driving knowledge with a review of time-tested safe driving tips and an overview of today's vehicle and traffic laws.
  2. You may be eligible to reduce as many as four (4) points on your driving record. The DMV computer will automatically note your eligibility to receive the reduction.
  3. If you are the principal operator of a motor vehicle, you will receive a 10% reduction in the base rate of your automobile liability and collision insurance premiums each year for three years.

In 2009 the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles allowed "course sponsors" to make the NY Defensive Driving course available online.
