Frequently Asked Questions

Getting your New Jersey Insurance Discount

Many insurance providers may offer a defensive driving discount to eligible New Jersey drivers. The terms and amount of savings may vary from provider to provider. Check with your insurance agent to see if you qualify for a defensive driver discount before registering for our course.

After passing the DriveSafe New Jersey Defensive Driving course, you will receive a completion certificate. You can email the certificate to your insurance agent as proof that you passed the course, or even have the certificate emailed directly to them. You can also print a hard copy of your completion certificate. If you’re eligible, your agent will use the certificate to confirm your eligibility for a discount.


Getting a New Jersey Driver License

New Drivers

New Jersey employs a graduated licensing program for all new drivers. Drivers who are 16 years of age and who have enrolled in a high school driver’s education course or a course at a licensed driver education school can obtain a student learner’s permit after passing vision and knowledge tests. After turning 17 and completing at least six months of supervised driving, the driver is eligible to take a road test. Upon passing the road test, the driver can advance to a probationary license. After one year of unsupervised driving, you can upgrade a probationary license to a basic driver’s license.

New drivers over the age of 16 can skip the driver’s education course, but must pass the knowledge, vision, and road tests to obtain a permit, have six months of supervised driving before advancing to a probationary license, and then drive unsupervised for one year before advancing to a basic license.

New drivers over the age of 21 follow the same process, but they only need three months of supervised driving to advance to a probationary license.

More information about New Jersey’s graduated licensing program can be found on the New Jersey MVC website.


New Jersey License Renewal

When your New Jersey license is due for renewal, you will receive a notice by mail. In most cases, you can renew your license online, even if the renewal notice says that you must renew in person. If your address is not current, you must update it before renewing online. The site to renew your New Jersey driver’s license online is here.

If you plan to visit a license renewal station in person, check the MVC website first to locate an office and determine its operating hours for the day.


New Jersey REAL ID

If you plan to use your driver’s license as proof of identity after October 2021 for boarding domestic flights or accessing federal facilities, such as military bases, you will need to ensure that you have a REAL ID.

New Jersey has set up an interactive website to help you determine whether you need a REAL ID. REAL IDs are similar to a standard driver’s license or New Jersey ID card, but they include a star in the upper right-hand corner.

To obtain a REAL ID, more substantial proof of identity than standard New Jersey driver’s licenses is required. You will need to provide 2 proofs of address, 1 proof of social security number, and 6 points of identification. More details about eligible identity documentation can be found on the REAL ID website.


Avoid Points Being Added to Your License

You may also be eligible to avoid points being added to your driving record simply by passing a DriveSafe Online course. Keep in mind that laws and regulations regarding the use of online defensive driving courses can vary from court to court. Before you take any online driving course, be sure to ask the court contact handling your traffic violation if the course meets their requirements for ticket dismissal, deferral, or diversion.  

Additional violations and the points assigned to them can be found online

Drivers can check their points using the MyDMV system.

New Jersey MVC Information

In New Jersey, the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) governs the issuance of driver’s licenses and vehicle-related services. Many of the services provided by the New Jersey MVC, such as license and vehicle registration renewal, are available online through the New Jersey MVC website. You can also schedule in-person services, such as knowledge and road tests, on the site.

The New Jersey Driver’s License Manual can also be found on the MVC website.
