Take Defensive Driving Online


Completion of a NYS DMV Approved Defensive Driving Course will save you up to 10%* off your auto policy premiums for 3 years.  We offer the Online Defensive Driving Courses by the New York Safety Council and Improv.  Improv is presented in a humorous way but it costs more than the NYSC course, so we are offering a discount on the Improv course.

Use PROMO CODE: BURNSDDC to save $5 on the Improv Defensive Driving Course.

Click on one of the banners below to begin.  You will have 30 days to complete your course.

Remember to send us your completion certificate so we can apply your discount!

*The discount only applies for principal operators. It does not apply to every coverage (defensive driving doesn't prevent hail after all). And there is at least one company that only offers 5%.

Going to Canada?

Ask us for a Canadian ID card. "A U.S. traveler in Canada is required to carry a motor vehicle liability card, plus vehicle ownership papers. A copy of the automobile policy is recommended to be carried. And a Canadian Non-Resident Inter-provincial Motor Vehicle Liability Card is strongly recommended. U.S. travelers who do not carry a Canadian Non-Resident Inter-provincial Motor Vehicle Liability Card and are stopped by Canadian police or are in an accident while driving in Canada risk being fined or having their vehicle impounded until proof of proper coverage is obtained."
