Points on Your License? Traffic101 Can Help You Tell Them Goodbye

With over 20 years of experience in online driver safety courses, Traffic101 offers top-notch online driving education. Their state-approved course meets all PIRP requirements, so improving your record after a ticket is a breeze.

While a PIRP course won’t dismiss your ticket completely, finishing Traffic101’s course lets you have up to 4 points removed from your license. This prevents costly insurance surcharges and keeps you away from the 11-point suspension limit.

You’ll also score a sweet 10% discount on car insurance premiums for 3 full years when you complete their program. It’s a great way to offset higher rates.

Effortless NY Point Reduction in a Snap!

Here are the steps you need to follow to receive the benefits of a NY DMV-approved PIRP course:

  1. Contact your court to confirm eligibility for the PIRP program. Eligibility is based on violation type and time since completing your last course.
  2. Enroll in and complete a PIRP course through a New York Department of Motor Vehicles-approved provider prior to your scheduled hearing date.
  3. Obtain a course completion certificate from the PIRP provider upon finishing all course materials.
  4. File the original completion certificate with the court handling your traffic citation before the scheduled hearing.
  5. Present a copy of the completion certificate to the judge/prosecutor when attending your hearing.
  6. Pay any administrative court fees or remaining fines per the outcome of your case. Dismissal or reduction of fines varies.
  7. Confirm any adjustments made to the traffic citation charges and points assessed against your driver’s license with the court and NY DMV.
  8. If all requirements are met, up to 4 points may be reduced from your license record. The traffic citation may also potentially be reduced to a lesser charge or dismissed entirely.
  9. Submit a copy of your completion certificate to your auto insurance carrier to receive a discount on premiums. Check your license status on the NY DMV website approximately 10 weeks after finishing the to ensure your reduced point total has been posted.

Please remember that this list serves only as a general guideline. Be sure to contact your court or the NY DMV for specific eligibility and procedural details.

If you are taking the course for insurance discount ONLY:

Enroll in and complete a PIRP course through a NY DMV-approved provider. Ensure the provider submits notifications electronically.

Obtain a completion certificate from the provider as proof of finishing the course materials.

Present the certificate to your auto insurance carrier within 90 days of PIRP course completion to receive a premium discount. Insurance premium discount can start from the date of course completion. Enjoy!

I have a long and checkered history with defensive driving. I took my first "court invited" course at age 15 and realized immediately that there had to be a better way. Since that first experience, I have gone on to teach defensive driving classroom courses and to author four internet courses in 2 states. After nearly 25 years in the industry, I can help you find a course that will be the best fit for you.
