New York’s Tough Point System – Mistakes Cost You

In New York, traffic violations stick on your record as points for a minimum of 18 months. Rack up 11+ points, and your license is automatically suspended. Accrue over 10 in under a year – same result.

Insurance companies can also see your DMV record and points from the past 5 years. More points equals higher premiums. Every point costs you money.

But there’s a way to erase points before the damage is done…

Fight Back Against Points with TicketSchool’s Online Course

New York’s Point Reduction Program allows drivers to dismiss up to 4 points by completing an approved defensive driving course. Just one ticket could add 4+ points to your license.

TicketSchool’s online course wipes those points away, stopping suspensions and controlling insurance costs. All in a convenient, 100% online format you can complete in just a few hours.

Finish in just one sitting or take your time – with 180-day access, you complete the course when it fits your schedule. Plus, retake guarantees and exceptional customer service.

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.
