Yes, NY law mandates all insurance companies in New York give their customers a discount by completing a Defensive Driving Course. But the discounted course price above is only for GEICO customers. If you are insured with another carrier, please register here.
It’s really simple. Sign up online and log into the course. Only 10 short chapters and you will have 30 days to complete it. You can complete all at once or at whatever pace you like. You can use any digital device such as a cell phone or tablet to take the course while on the go. No final exam required. Once you finish the course, we will provide your certificate of completion for your insurance carrier and notify NY DMV.
We will notify NY DMV upon your completion of the course. A notice will then be entered on your New York driving record, and your points should automatically be reduced by up to 4 points. Please note we can only reduce the points which are applied to your driving record in the past eighteen (18) months.
Taking a one-time course will ensure your insurance savings for 3 years (those who move to another state or anyone who has a lapse in coverage may not be able to get a full 3 years discount). After 3 years, you simply need to take the course again and then you can secure your savings for another 3 years.
