A $10 processing fee is charged for class materials and the cost of removing up to two points from a driver’s record with the state Motor Vehicle Commission. The fee is payable at the class.
Cash will not be accepted. Checks should be made payable to the National Safety Council. Vehicle insurers give a five percent premium reduction for completing the course, which uses lessons developed by the National Safety Council.
