Per New Jersey State rule, N.J.S.A. 17:33B-45.1, NJ insurance companies are required to offer insurance premium discounts for drivers who successfully completed an approved NJ defensive driving course. This applies to all insurancecompanies writing private passenger policies in New Jersey, and earns the defensive driving participant a minimum of five percent discount with many carriers offering up to 10%.
The insurance reduction is available for three years.
Discounts apply to private passenger automobiles, with only one discount per vehicle. If the policy insures two or more vehicles, the discount applies to the vehicle principally operated by the person who completes the course. If you have multiple drivers and multiple vehicles in your household it may benefit you for every driver to complete the course.

There are several reasons why it may be a good idea for a New Jersey driver to take a defensive driving course. Such courses not only teach important accident prevention techniques but can also enable drivers to get a discount on their auto insurance. Additionally, a New Jersey defensive driving course can enable a driver to get bad points removed from his or her record and/or get a traffic ticket dismissed.
A defensive driving course must be provided by a state approved body. Drivers have the option to either attend the course in person or take it online. The latter option is naturally ideal for those who have a full time job and/or other important responsibilities that must be managed during regular work hours. A defensive driving course must be completed within 180 days, those who do not complete the course during this time period will be automatically counted as having failed the course. Refunds are not provided for anyone who fails to complete the course before the appointed deadline.
As was noted above, taking a New Jersey defensive driving course can enable a driver to have points removed from his or her license. However, it should be noted that the points can only be removed if they are present at the time a driver signs up for the course. What is more, only two points can be removed every five years.
Points can result in the suspension or even loss of one's license; given this fact, it behooves a driver to be aware of driving rules and regulations in the state so as to avoid accumulating points and/or driving tickets. Following are some infractions that can result in the addition of points to one's license:
Two Point Infractions:
Failing to stop at a crosswalk or safety zone
Failing to give right of way to emergency vehicles
Driving the wrong way
Three Point Infractions:
Making an erroneous left/right turn or U-turn
Making an improper turn at a stop light
Four Point Infractions:
Speeding (anywhere from 15 to 29 miles per hour over the posted speed limit)
Five Point Infractions:
Driving in a reckless manner
Speeding (30 or more miles per hour over the posted speed limit)
Course Details and Requirements
Per NJ state, a defensive driving course must last a minimum of six hours, after which you will take a short 25 question quiz and you are done.
It should be noted that in some cases signing up for a defensive driving course will not result in the dismissal of a traffic ticket or help a driver remove points from his or her driver’s license. This is something that is determined on a case by case basis; when in doubt, a driver should check with the court handling his or her case as well as the defensive driving course provider.
Generally speaking, those who want to get a ticket dismissed or have points removed from a license will need to have a valid driver’s license from the state and have committed only a single violation while driving a personal vehicle. Furthermore, those who have taken a defensive driving course in the last twelve to eighteen months are not eligible for point removal or ticket dismissal.
