New York State Approved Point Reduction Program
Defensive Driving Course NY
The following table shows the point values assigned to moving traffic violations. The "points" are assessed against your driving record based on the date you committed the violation, not the date you were convicted in court. If you accumulate 11 or more points in 18 months, you will be called to a DMV hearing, after which your license may be suspended or revoked. You will be offered the option of waiving the hearing or accepting a definite period of suspension.
New York Safe Drive offers the New York Point Reduction Course (Defensive Driving Course) online. Aside from providing you with a NY insurance reduction, the course will also reduce 4 points from the accumulated points on your NY motor vehicle report.
Below is a list of New York traffic violations and the points you will receive for each violation.
