These courses are designed to educate Delaware drivers on the importance of safe driving techniques and reduce the number of crashes that occur in the state each year. To complete the course, you must get through every section and pass the final exam.
Length of the Courses
Although the Delaware Defensive Driving 3-Hour Refresher Course is, of course, three hours, the Delaware Defensive Driving Course is six hours in length which is state-required. If an insured driver completes the Delaware Defensive Driving 3-Hour Refresher Course within 180 days prior to the three-year expiration date of taking the initial course then they will receive the 15% discount when the renewal date occurs.
If five years lapse from the day you completed the first Delaware Defensive Driving Course before you take the Delaware Defensive Driving 3-Hour Refresher Course, you will have to take the first course again.

Upon Completion of the Delaware Defensive Driving Course
Once you finish the course, you will be able to download your certificate immediately. It is then sent by the American Safety Council to the Delaware DMV for review. If you have satisfactorily completed the course, you will likely receive your three-point credit, but this decision may vary case by case.
To receive your car insurance discount, however, you must submit a copy of the certificate to your state motor vehicle agency and your auto insurance provider. Make sure you submit just a copy and keep the original for your records.
In terms of your insurance reduction, if you pass the course, you will receive a Motor Vehicle Accident Prevention Course Discount, and it will be applied to the total premiums for bodily injury liability coverage, property damage liability coverage, and personal injury protection coverage on your automobiles, motor homes or motorcycles. If you want to learn more about the discount, visit the Delaware Department of Insurance website.
If you drive for work and you simply want to impress or please your employer, you can present this course certificate or include it on your list of qualifications.
