Taking the online defensive driving course is the easiest way to receive a car insurance discount, but it’s also a convenient way to get a traffic ticket point reduction.
If you accumulate 11 points on your driving record in an 18 month period, your license will be suspended. Fortunately, when you complete our online defensive driving course, the NYS DMV will not count four points that are on your license towards suspension or revocation.
All you need to do in order to receive the point reduction is to complete the defensive driving course. We electronically notify the New York DMV that you have completed the course, and they will automatically reduce four points from your driving record.
Point reduction will not help you save your license from mandatory suspensions that result from DUI and DWI violations and receiving 3 speeding violations in 18 months.
The reduction of four points only applies to tickets you received in the 18 months prior to completing the course and can not be used as a credit towards future points.
