How Online Defensive Driving Works

Simply sign-up and then you can begin taking the course right away! The Defensive Driving course takes 320 minutes to complete, as mandated by the state of New York - but don't worry, you don’t have to take it all at once. You have 30 days to complete the course and you may sign off and on as often as you need. After successful completion of the course, which we promise you'll pass or your money back, we will mail you your original certificate of completion. It's that easy!
