Started at school, finished in line at IKEA

I really appreciated not having to sit in a classroom seat for 8 hours! I was able to start the school from my desktop and pick it back up on my iPhone when I was standing in line at Ikea. A good use of my time waiting around.

One of the best Defensive Driving courses

This is one of the best Defensive Driving courses you can take. Highly recommend this to anybody who needs the reduction in premiums or just wants to be a safer driver.

@River H.

Wow, simple and easy course

Wow I was afraid to do a video course online but after a live chat with Jordan about the course details I felt safe to do it, what a great source of information it was simple and easy to do it at one time. Same day certificate is awesome, can't ask for anything better than that.

New Jersey Defensive Driving Course FAQs

Am I eligible to take this course?

New Jersey insurance companies are required (per New Jersey State rule, N.J.S.A. 17:33B-45.1) to offer insurance premium discounts for drivers who successfully completed an approved course. This applies to all insurance companies 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%. Safe drivers are preferred on the road and you will get a certificate to prove it!

How often can I take NJ Defensive Driving?

The auto insurance reduction can last up to 3 years and you are eligible to take a New Jersey defensive driving course for a point reduction once every 5 years.

Why is this course better than other courses?

So many reasons! We’ve been in business for over 20 years, we have an exceptional 24/7 customer support team, and our material is both easier and more entertaining than anything else you’ll find. That we guarantee.

How do I submit my New Jersey Defensive Driving certificate?

Upon completion of your classes, we will notify the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) electronically and you can print your own certificate within 30 minutes! Keep a copy for your records and/or insurance agent.

I own more than one vehicle. Does the NJ Defensive Driving discount apply to all policies?

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.

We suggest that all family members who are a principal driver on the insurance policy should take the NJ defensive driving course to each receive a 5%-10% discount on the auto insurance policy. For example, four family members with four vehicles on the policy can save up to 40%!

What is the New Jersey Defensive Driving Course?

Is your course accepted by all insurance companies?

Does a New Jersey Defensive Driving Course provide a point reduction if I have a traffic ticket or have existing points on my driving record?

Our New Jersey online Defensive Driving course removes two points from your license and driving record every five years. Note that these points can only be removed if they are present at the time a driver signs up for the course.

Points can result in the suspension or even loss of one’s license, so don’t wait to get them cleared!

It should be noted that in some cases signing up for a Defensive Driving course will not necessarily 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 their case as well as the defensive driving course provider.

Is there a final exam?

No, there’s no exam. Each of our 10 short chapters has a 2-question quiz. (You have unlimited attempts to pass each quiz, yay!)

At the end, you’ll have a multiple choice quiz with 25 questions. You need 20 correct answers to pass. Not a good test taker? Not to worry, you once again get unlimited free attempts to pass!
