FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You may receive a reduction of up to four (4) points on your driving record.
After I complete the course, how do I receive the license point reduction?
The course sponsor automatically notifies DMV that you have completed the course. A course completion notation is entered on your driving record in the DMV computer. Convictions and original points remain on the record, they are not deleted. After the course completion notation goes on your record; the computer subtracts up to four points when calculating your point total. The course completion notation is listed on DMV-printed copies of your driving record, along with the original points and convictions.
The course completion notation usually appears on your record within eight weeks after you complete the course. If you wish to verify that course completion has been noted on your record, request a copy of your driving record from DMV two months or more after completing the course. Give your full name, date of birth and motorist identification number as they appear on your license. Send this information and a check or money order for $5.00, payable to the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles, to the Public Service Bureau, Driver Abstracts, DMV, Empire State Plaza Albany NY 12228.How do I know how many points I have on my driving record?
