New York Defensive Driving

Defensive Driving and IPIRP: New York Defensive Driving, otherwise known as an accident prevention course, is part of the New York Department of Motor Vehicle's Internet Point and Insurance Reduction Program (or IPIRP). This course is designed to teach motorists driving strategies that help minimize risks associated with hazards on the road. In addition, this defensive driving course includes applicable New York state traffic laws that help drivers use safer driving techniques to avoid and prevent accidents.

How it Works: The New York Department of Motor Vehicles allows you to complete a defensive driving course to reduce up to four points on your driving record and provide you with a mandatory 10% insurance reduction for 3 years. Whether you are required by the NYS DMV, looking to reduce ticket points and/or just want your 10% car insurance reduction, this state-approved course will help you meet your goal.

Online Defensive Driving: While New Yorkers have been completing this course for years in the classroom, it has just been made available in an online format. What this means is the entire course from registration to completion is taken online and meets all state and DMV requirements for point reduction and insurance reduction.

The defensive driving course is available 24/7 and is accessible from anywhere with a computer and the internet. It doesn't matter if you are using a broadband or dial-up connection. Yes it is that simple, no classroom required.
