IPIRP stands for Internet Point and Insurance Reduction Program. Originally titled PIRP, the IPIRP course is essentially the same defensive driving course delivered in an online format.
It is also known as the alternate delivery method internet point and insurance reduction course for New York residents.
New York Defensive Driving Courses will take 320 minutes from start to finish as directed by the state of New York. Approved courses by the NYS DMV with an online delivery method do not need to be completed all in one sitting – the course is accessible 24/7 and you may log off and on as often as you need until course completion!
This online defensive driving course will reduce your point total by up to 4 points upon course completion. The reduction program ipirp will also give you a mandatory 10% discount on your insurance rates for 3 years in NY.
That will depend on your individual New York auto insurance policy. The state-mandated discount is 10% from the base rate of your collision and comprehensive portion of your policy. Many of our students averaged anywhere from $900 to $1500 over the course of three years after our defensive driving online course completion.
PIRP (Defensive Driving) does not prevent general premium increases or premium increases due to violations or accidents. The good news is that it provides a 10% reduction for three years, from the base rate of your current liability, no-fault, and collision premiums. So this way you’re always saving money, even if your rates go up!
We will notify the New York DMV after you complete the course. A notice will then be entered on your New York driving record, and the New York DMV computer will automatically reduce your active point total by up to four points. “Point reduction” means the New York department of motor vehicles will not count up to four points on your driving record toward license revocation or suspension. Points must have been applied to your driving record within the past eighteen (18) months to qualify for a reduction program IPIRP. We will also mail you a certificate of completion to present to your insurance company.
Yes, the insurance premium will apply to all motor vehicles principally operated by members of the family who complete the course. Please note that the discount can be applied to only one driver for each covered vehicle. To confirm the exact amount you will save, please contact your insurance agent.
You can take the course every three years for an insurance discount. You are allowed to take it for point reduction every 18 months if needed.
Each person with a New York driver license listed as a principal operator on an automobile policy must take this course in order to be eligible for a discount.
Example: if a family consists of a husband, wife, and a teenaged driver who own 3 automobiles, all three operators must take the course to be eligible for a discount on each automobile.
