In addition to allowing motorists to receive a mandatory car insurance discount, this defensive driving course is used for traffic ticket point reduction. In order to qualify for point reduction, you must have received the points within eighteen months before course completion. Points for earlier violations or future violations will not be affected by completing this defensive driving course.
