Mohawk Valley Community College’s Center for Corporate and Community Education has partnered with Oneida County Traffic Safety to offer Defensive Driving classes on the MVCC Rome and Utica Campuses.

Defensive Driving
The Point/Insurance Reduction Program, developed by the National Safety Council and approved by the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles, offers drivers a means to reduce up to four points from their driving record and receive a 10 percent insurance reduction. The program emphasizes safe and defensive driving techniques for drivers of all ages and skill levels, including those with a driver’s permit.

Bring your license or permit to class, and a lunch to Saturday classes. Students are required to be on time and stay until the completion of class. This course is offered in partnership with the Oneida County Traffic Safety Department. Registration for any class is $40.
