Driver Education



5 Hour Pre-Licensing
The Five Hour Pre-Licensing course is required in order to obtain a New York State driver’s license. Participants will learn to recognize and define driving as a mental, physical, and social task involving the interaction of the operator, the environment, and the vehicle; to identify factors that can impair a driver’s ability and the legal and moral responsibilities of highway users; and to recognize dangerous drivers and driving situations and how to react safely to protect themselves from possible injury or death by using seat belts. Students enrolling in the Five Hour Pre-Licensing Course must have a valid Learner’s Permit and must bring their NYS Learner’s Permit to class. Note: This class is mandated by New York State and each participant must be in class at the exact starting time listed. Late arrivals are neither allowed in class, nor are eligible for a refund. The completion certificate given at the end of the course is valid for 1 year and must be presented to the DMV in order to schedule the road test. If the road test is not scheduled prior to the certificate expiration, the course must be repeated.


Additional Information

Students must bring their NYS learner's permit with them. We also recommend bringing a lunch and/or beverage to class. Class will be given a 30 minute lunch break, but dining halls are closed on weekends and during the summer. No refrigeration is available.

Defensive Driving
Got a traffic ticket? Need to reduce the points on your license? Simply complete this course, approved by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, to remove up to four points from your license. Completion of this New York DMV-approved Point and Insurance Reduction Program (also known as PIRP and defensive driving) provides a 10% reduction, for 3 years, of the motorist's liability, no-fault and collision insurance premiums. Your car insurance discount is awarded on your current policy. You do not have to change your insurer or insurance agent. To qualify, you must have received the points within 18 months of course completion.


Additional Information

Upon course completion, students are eligible for a 10% insurance reduction and up to 4 points off their license. The proper paperwork must be filed with the American Safety Council to remove points from a person's license. More information on follow-up paperwork will be discussed in class. Students can check on their point reduction after course completion by getting an abstract of their license at the DMV.
