A National Safety Council Course

Program's Description

Motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death and injury in the workplace and the cost of a single accident could easily exceed $1.4 million. A defensive driver safety program can reduce risk and keep people safer on the road.

Nobody knows driver safety training like the people who pioneered it more than 50 years ago. The National Safety Council created the first defensive driving course in 1964 and has been the leader in driver safety training ever since.

Our  6-Hour Defensive Drive course is delivered through The National Safety Council Certified Instructors, who are experienced with over 10 years in the safety industry.

Defensive driving courses, also known in some states as traffic school, are courses that enhance your skills behind the wheel. They are state-specific and address your state’s traffic requirements and regulations, as well as areas of concern on the road. They also aim to instill habits that can prevent accidents or help you react more quickly to an oncoming hazard.

In short, a defensive driving course refreshes your driving knowledge and teaches you to drive defensively, giving you a better foundation to make safe, quick decisions while behind the wheel.

Upon successful completion of an approved defensive driving course/traffic school in New York:

  • Your safe driving knowledge will be refreshed.
  • You can remove up to 4 points from your NYS DMV driving record.
  • You will receive a 10% insurance rate reduction for 3 years.
  • The completion of a defensive driving course/accident prevention course will not:
  • Prevent a mandatory revocation or suspension of your New York driver’s license.
  • Relieve your responsibility to pay a driver responsibility assessment.

When you successfully pass your defensive driving course, your course provider will mail you a completion certificate:

  • Within 45 days, when you take a classroom course.

Once you present your New York traffic school completion certificate to your insurance company, within 90 days after course completion, your liability and collision premium reduction will come into effect.

If you present your certificate of completion more than 90 days after you complete the course, your insurance provider may issue your premium discount effective from the date presented.If you don’t receive your certificate within 8 weeks after completing the course, you should immediately contact your defensive driving course provider.

This course can be taken once every 3 years to maintain insurance reduction benefits.It’s important to note that the completion of traffic school/PIRP does not prevent general premium increases, or premium increases due to accidents or violations.
