NY drivers can get a reduction in their auto insurance premium by completing a qualifying course. This course is nicknamed the “Accident Prevention Course” or the “Defensive Driving Class”. It’s a six-hour class that reviews safety precautions drivers should take to have an added measure of safety while behind the wheel.
You can also save on your car insurance by taking the class. From the date you complete the course, and for three years, you will save ten percent on the liability, personal injury protection (no-fault), and collision premiums. You can get credit for the primary vehicle driven by each person completing the course (once per vehicle, once per driver).
Many people prefer the convenience of taking the course online. You can use this link http://www.myimprov.com/?a_aid=AID133843 to enroll in an online course. The course can also be taken in a classroom – either all in one day, or split over two or more days. Contact your public library or chamber of commerce for more information about where this class is held in your area.
