What is the maximum number of points that can be removed from my DMV record?

What is the class like?
There is no computer to sit in front of for five (5) hours. There is no internet connection to worry about. The class was created to be dynamic, entertaining, practical and fast paced. The material has great graphics, video and images to move the class along.
Is there any benefit to taking the course if I have not received a traffic citation?
In addition to reviewing or learning valuable road survival skills training, for individuals over the age of 55 years, many insurance companies will reduce your premiums up to 15% if you take a DMV certified traffic school course. So you can concurrently remove three (3) demerit points while possibly reducing the cost of your automobile insurance premium. Please check with your insurance carrier to see if they offer you this savings.
