Point Insurance Reduction Program (PIRP)

The New York Point Insurance Reduction Program is a DMV approved 6-hour accident prevention course that can be taken for an auto insurance discount or point dismissal. Drivers who hold a New York driver license may take the PIRP course voluntarily to receive an automatic 10% auto insurance discount effective for three years. The course may be taken for this purpose once every three years.

DTA currently offers the PIRP course in a classroom setting through our licensed agencies. We also offer the course on the Internet. You can click the register button on this page to sign up through DTA for your online PIRP course.
