Defensive Driving in New Hampshire
Defensive Driving Improvement Programs
New Hampshire has driver improvement courses, also known as defensive driving. You may want to attend a driving school because you got a traffic ticket and want to reduce the points on your record; because you got a DWI and were ordered to; or because you're interested in improving your driving and want to reduce your insurance rates.
When you begin researching driving schools to attend, ask plenty of questions based on your reasons for taking the course.
If you lose your license due to a DWI conviction, you'll be required to take one of several alcohol awareness training programs.
Depending on the violation, and your previous driving record, you may be ordered to attend and successfully complete:
- An Impaired Driver Intervention Program (IDIP)
- A Weekend Impaired Driver Intervention Program (WIDIP)
- A Phase II program for impaired drivers
- The Multiple Offender Program (MOP)
Fees for these classes are costly.
For more information, be sure to explore DMV.org's special section about DUI & DWI offenses.
Lowering Insurance Premiums
Contact your insurance company to ask questions. Many companies offer discounts on auto insurance premiums but ask how much, and if you are eligible.
You may not qualify for a discount based on your age or your driving record.
