New Jersey Point Reduction

When you complete this defensive driving course, our company will notify the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJ MVC) electronically of your completion.  You will receive an e-mailed copy of your completion certificate for your records and/or auto insurance agent. Once the NJ MVC receives notification of your completion, 2 points will be removed from your driving record shortly thereafter.  Note: You must possess a NJ drivers license for the point reduction to apply.

Driving is a privilege, not a right. If you break New Jersey traffic laws, your driving privileges could be suspended or revoked resulting in fines and even imprisonment. The seriousness of your violations - and resulting penalties - are tracked by NJ MVC using a point system.

If you are convicted of a moving violation, the New Jersey MVC will penalize you by adding points to your driving record. You will only get points on your record for moving violations - points are not assessed for parking and other violations.

How do points affect you?

1. If you get six or more points within three years on your current driving record, you will be assessed a surcharge.

2. If you get 12 or more points on your current driving record, your license will be suspended. You will receive a notice of scheduled suspension by mail.

3. Getting points on your license may also increase your insurance rates.  Participation in a NJ defensive driving course (like this one) will help keep your insurance premiums affordable.

At the bottom of this page, there is a breakdown of the most common infractions and the points assigned to each.
