Getting a traffic ticket is enough to ruin anyone’s day. The steep fines, insurance increases and points on your record can really make the process a headache. Show your insurance provider and the NYS DMV that you care about improving your driving habits by taking an online defensive driving course. In return, they’ll reduce up to four points from your driving record and you’ll also receive a 10% insurance discount.
This does not mean that the four points will magically disappear, but they won’t be counted towards a driver’s license suspension. You can’t use the course for points that you received more than 18 months ago or for future violations, but if you are eligible, taking the course will save you money on insurance and can prevent a driver’s license suspension.
If you’re not familiar with the NYS DMV point system, you may not know how important it is to keep your record clear of points. For every traffic ticket violation, the DMV can assign anywhere from 2 to 11 points on your record. If you are assigned 11 points in an 18 month period, you could have your license suspended. Even with just a few points on your driving record, your insurance rate will likely increase. At 6 points on your record within 18 months, the DMV will charge you an annual fee for being a high risk driver. Don’t wait until it’s too late; take our online defensive driving course to prevent your traffic violations from your license. If you’re not sure how many points you have, Click Here to request a copy of your driving record. Keep in mind, even if your driving record is clear, you can still take the course for a 10% insurance discount.
When you’re done taking the course we’ll directly file your record of completion with the DMV and they’ll record the point reduction within weeks after you graduate from the course.
