Fun and Engaging Course

Our New York State DMV Approved defensive driving course is sponsored by the National Point and Insurance Reduction Course, initially created by the Improv Comedy Club. We believe in “edutainment–” learning through entertainment, making our classes anything but boring. You always learn more when you actually stay awake!

Driving Expertise and Experience

Teaching since 2014, and now with over 3,000 students taught per year, founder, creator, and instructor Ray Ammerman’s experience and fun delivery has earned a 5-Star Google review rating. In fact, Safe Driver Academy is enormously proud to be NYS’s Top-Ranked course.

Get to Know Safe Driver Academy: NYS’s Top-Rated Defensive Driving Course

Safe Driver Academy takes a fun approach in its commitment to helping drivers of all ages–from 16 to 101–master safer driving with a concentration on the psychology of driving. The goal is that you become a better, safer, happier driver. Take the stress out of your commute and travels!

Course completion also reduces your auto and motorcycle insurance premiums by 10% for three years. Plus, completion also reduces up to 4 violation points from your driving record.

Our instructor Ray was recruited by a fellow Improv instructor who attended a public event that Ray was emceeing. His clever humor, attention-grabbing and retaining skills, and his ability to engage and hold an audience proved the perfect fit for NYS’s only approved humor-based course.
