Point Reduction in New Hampshire
Completing a state-approved driver improvement program can remove points from your New Hampshire driving record. To be eligible, you generally must:
- Have points on your driving record.
- Have not taken advantage of this option in the past few years.
- Have a non-commercial driver's license.

A traffic school course may also be an option for you if you need to satisfy a court requirement or wish to earn a discount on your car insurance. Even if you are not eligible to dismiss a ticket, reduce your points, or earn a discount, a defensive driving course taken voluntarily can still prove to be beneficial.
Upon completing a course, you will have likely strengthened your foundation of safe driving knowledge. You'll be able to put into practice the skills and techniques you've learned that can help reduce your chances of committing traffic violations and causing accidents in the future.
To receive credit, the driver improvement program you enroll in must be approved by the New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). If you have any doubts about the school you're considering, double-check with the DMV.
Typically, your traffic school program will cover topics, such as:
- New Hampshire traffic laws.
- Consequences for serious violations.
- Defensive driving techniques and tips.
- Safe and responsible driving behaviors.
- Sharing the road.
- Alcohol/drug violations and consequences.
Aside from the benefit of dismissing driving record points, you'll get a great refresher on some of the topics you may not have touched on since you last completed driver's education.Other Topics in This Section
