Accident Prevention

Ticket School’s New York Accident Prevention Course is designed to benefit all New York drivers, but new drivers in particular can benefit. That is because the course is convenient to take and fits easily into even the most hectic of schedules. Plus the course provides insurance saving opportunities that are especially beneficial to new drivers who typically have higher rates than more established drivers. Finally, the course provides valuable information for staying safe behind the wheel. Let’s take a closer look at this great course.

Overview of the New York Accident Prevention Course

The New York Accident Prevention Course, also commonly referred to as the New York Internet Point and Insurance Reduction Program (IPIRP), is a 6-hour course designed to help New York drivers stay safe on the road and prevent crashes. Ticket School’s course is fully approved by the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and is available 100% online and without a final exam. Instead the course is divided into units, and each unit will have a five-question quiz at the end to test comprehension. You must score at least a 75% or better on the quiz to pass and you will have up to three attempts to do so.

Drivers who complete and who have points on their driving records as a result of violations received within the last 18 months are eligible to have up to four of these points not be counted by the New York DMV, which could help avoid driver’s license suspensions or revocations. Violations older than 18 months are not eligible for this benefit, and the course will not apply credit points to your record.

The New York Accident Prevention Course Helps New Drivers Get Lower Insurance Rates

In addition to the point reduction benefit discussed above, all drivers who complete the New York Accident Prevention Course will receive a mandatory 10% auto insurance discount on their liability and collision premiums. Insurance companies cannot deny this discount and it must remain in effect for at least three years upon the completion of the Accident Prevention Course. After three years, drivers may retake the course to have the discount renewed. This is a great benefit for new drivers who often face higher premiums. Plus, since there is no limit on the number of times the course can be taken to receive the 3-year discount, this can add up to huge savings over the driver’s lifetime.

The New York Accident Prevention Course Provides Crucial Safety Information

One of the most fundamental ways that the New York Accident Prevention Course protects new drivers is by providing crucial safety information and teaching techniques for defensive driving. These techniques can help drivers recognize and avoid dangerous situations before it is too late. The course will also teach drivers to be more aware of their own behavior behind the wheel and how it affects their safety and the safety of those around them.
