You may apply to reduce points on your license once every five years; to receive an insurance discount, once every three years. Please note that your points cannot fall below zero. Licensed motorists with fewer than four points enjoy a mandatory discount on the auto liability, collision and no-fault portions of their insurance premiums for three years, starting with the next renewal. Course costs vary according to the goal:

2 Point Reduction
