Learn Defensive Driving with Our Online Driver Safety Course
Written by Marleen González-Hernández, M.A.
An online driver safety course, also known as a defensive driving class, has valuable benefits in addition to helping you become a safer driver. New York Safety Council offers a DMV-approved driver safety course that helps you reduce points on your driving record and lower your insurance rate.
Our mission is to save you money and prepare you to avoid collisions and on-the-road hazards. If you received points on your driving record after a recent ticket in New York, you can reduce up to four points by completing the course. This could protect you from a license suspension and other penalties.
Course graduates can also receive a guaranteed 10% insurance discount by submitting a course certificate to their insurance provider. The discount will last three years, and you can retake the course as often as you like to renew your discount.
