NTSI’s New York Defensive Driving course contains the most current information on defensive driving, traffic laws, collision avoidance and the affects of alcohol and drugs on drivers. NTSI is a DMV-licensed Defensive Driving School that fulfills the 6-Hour defensive driving requirement.

Finally if you are looking to save money and reduce your driving points, we are part of the New York Point/Insurance Reduction Program (PIRP).

Upon completion of the NY Defensive Driving Course, you are eligible for a 10% reduction in the base rate of your Liability & Collision insurance. Depending on the insurance company, the discount will be given on the date of course completion, regardless of when the insurance company receives the certificate. In New York the Defensive Driving Course must be completed every 3 years to maintain your insurance discount. Please contact your insurance provider for more detailed information on how your preferred insurance applies this discount for your defensive driving course.

In addition to a mandatory car insurance rate reduction, your New York driving record can be reduced by up to 4 points. Please note that points do not get removed from your record, the course REDUCES points. The NYS DMV defines the term “point reduction” as meaning the DMV will not count up to four points on your driving record toward license revocation or suspension. This does not apply to points received after the course. It is only applicable to points received within the 18 months before the course. Students must wait 18 months after a defensive driving course completion before it can be taken again for point reduction.



If you are an out of state driver with a license from another state you must take the NY defensive driving class in New York unless you get permission from the judge or DMV to take it in your own state. In many cases our online defensive driving course will satisfy this requirement.
