The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission [formerly NJDMV] announced that the Commission has authorized two groups that will offer on-line defensive driving courses to New Jersey drivers. Under New Jersey law, a person who completes a defensive driving course receives a 2 point reduction on their driver's license penalty point total. The credit can be granted one time every five years following completion of the defensive driving course. Those who successfully complete the defensive driving course are also entitled to a mandatory, three-year automobile insurance discount.
The providers and their web addresses are:
The American Safety Council – www.safemotorist.com (course fee is $49);
I Drive Safely – www.idrivesafely.com (course fee $50).
Unlike classroom defensive driving courses, the online courses can be taken at one's convenience for 6 hours of computer time over a period of days.
