IMPORTANT: Please be sure you know which class is required before you continue the registration process. National Safety Council is not responsible for drivers taking the incorrect class. Once registered, all fees are non-refundable.
Drivers that are issued a driver license permit for the first time are probationary drivers and will have to serve a two-year probationary period. While in the probationary period, drivers who are convicted of two or more moving violations with a total of four or more points, will receive a Fee Due Notice from the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission requiring the driver to enroll in the Probationary Driver Program to correct improper or dangerous driving practices. Failure to complete this course will result in an indefinite suspension of your driving privileges. To have your driving privileges restored, you will be required to enroll in the Probationary Driver Program and also pay a $175 restoration fee to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.
Per the regulations, Alive at 25®, offered by the National Safety Council, is an approved course for the PDP. Alive at 25 is a highly interactive 4-hour classroom intervention program that zeroes in on drivers ages 16 to 25 — the group most likely to be involved in a fatal collision. Alive at 25 uses workbook exercises, group discussions, role-playing and short lectures to help keep young drivers safe on the road.
If you returned your Fee Due Notice with the required $75 administrative fee to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, call (877) 441-9721 to register for the Probationary Driver Program Virtual Training class. The class fee is an additional $75, payable at the time of registration.
Please understand that this is a state-mandated course and may not qualify for an insurance discount.
