This was an excellent course! Easy to follow and kept my interest!

Shannon B., Oswego, NY

This is a good course, it reminded me of things I should know and forgot over the years of driving.

-Harris C., Hogansburg, NY

The course was very informative and interesting. A great way to make this information easy to absorb.

-Christopher D., Levittown, NY

Loved doing this at home, being able to take breaks when I needed them was awesome as I am disabled and sitting for a 6 hour class is nearly impossible. I have already recommended this course to friends and will continue to do so! Thanks for creating this course!

-Donna G., Wantagh, NY

I will never take this course in a class setting again. I liked being able to take it at my leisure, in the comfort of my own home. I didn't have to worry about getting to a class on time or having to find a babysitter for my children. It was interesting and entertaining. Thank you.

-Jill A., Flushing, NY

This was great. In today's day and age time is limited. This customized approach to obtaining a defensive driving certificate is long overdue. Thank you!!!

-Philip S., New York, NY

I found this course very interesting and entertaining. It was convenient for me, as I am a stay at home mom. The teacher made this course funny and enjoyable to watch...I truly learned a lot.

-Theresa A., Staten Island, NY

Taking it online was very easy to work into my schedule!

-Sarah H., Newfane, NY

My wife took this course a few years ago and I have to agree with her that it much easier to take at home than at some driving school. Thanks, great program.

-Richard B., Forest Hills, NY

I was pleased to find that I was already driving using many of the suggested practices recommended by this course but the delivery of this course, as compared with others, is infinitely better. Thanks.

-Stephen B., Babylon, NY

Really enjoyed this course. Nice having the flexibility of coming back to it whenever you like.

-Thomas L., Liverpool, NY

I think most drivers should take this course to refresh themselves on their own driving habits. Great online course.

-Michael O., Mechanicsville, NY

Love this online course. Very user friendly and easy to navigate. I've heard stories from friends of how diffucult it was to use other online DD Courses online and after I'd told them about my experience here on MyImprov.com they decided to use this site in the future. Thank you for creating such an awesome site. Also enjoyed the comedy video clips when I finished a chapter before allotted time.

-Terrell R., Peekskill, NY

I liked that I was able to schedule the course around my busy schedule.

-Maria M., Farmingville, NY

This is one of the best defensive driving courses you can take. The advice is very useful, and I actually remember everything. I apply the lessons later that same day when I am driving! Highly recommend this to anybody who needs the reduction in premiums or just wants to be a safer driver.

-Ann W., Fresh Meadows, NY

Absolutely loved hearing Charles Fleischer doing the narration!

-Dane D., Niagara Falls, NY

I initially did not believe a course like this, much so that it's an online one can be that effective. After completing it, I am a true believer and a changed driver. I highly recommend this alternative delivery method by Improv!

-Ramoncito D., New York, NY

I was pleased to find that I was already driving using many of the suggested practices recommended by this course but the delivery of this course, as compared with others, is infinitely better. Thanks.

-Stephen B., Babylon, NY

I am thankful to have had taken such a helpful, easy to use, defensive driving course. I learned a lot of interesting facts, statistics, and other information that will result in me becoming a better driver.

-Maxwell F., Yonkers, NY

I was very surprised at how easy and informative this course was. It helped me review my driving habits and allowed me to realise how adjustments I needed to make. I definitely believe that I will be a more conscious and considerate driver.

-Julio G., Queens, NY

The insurance reduction course was not boring at all. The content was informative and a great refresher.

-Maria N., Dix Hills, NY

This course was very convenient, engaging and interesting. I found there examples to be funny but at the same time they applied to real life situations. The system was very user friendly and i enjoy taking this course. Thank you!

-Kostantinos K., Bayside, NY

I was very happy to complete the course in my home rather than spend two nights elsewhere. The course was enjoyable, not boring. Thank you.

-Anne N., Lindenhurst, NY

I found it very convenient to use as I have a very busy life. I could return to it whenever I had a little bit of free time, it was great. Also I enjoyed the intro videos, very humorous, it kept my interest. Y

-Christine S., Plattsburgh, N

The defensive driving course was much easier than I had expected!

-Coleen W., Nunda, CA

I thought the course is really well done. The information is laid out well. I learned a lot of interesting facts and statistics that I never realized before.

-Jessica Z., Amsterdam, NY

This is so much better than going to a classroom. Better in a lot of ways. One the comfort of your home. Two it can be taken at your own pace. Third it was funny, interesting, and not at all boring. I learned a lot, laughed a lot and really truly enjoyed it. I'm glad this defensive driving course came out in New York.

- Daluza V. NY, NY

This was a breath of fresh air from the online continuing education course for real estate that I STILL have no finished because its so boring! This was very engaging and interesting and I will definitely recommend this defensive driving course to my friends and colleagues.

- Angela B. New York

There are so many statistics and facts that I was not aware of at all until taking this defensive driving course and learning more tips of being a safe and aware driver and person. My motivation was initially to lower my insurance premium and to further reduce it by removing points from my record which I received when I was younger and a more inexperienced driver. Now at my age and time in life I can appreciate this course and knowledge and apply it to my driving habits and practices and be one step closer to being a safe driver and being an example to other New York drivers new and old to be careful and learn from your mistakes and change your driving habits. Thank You"!

- Alan P. Buffalo, NY

Well, I have to be honest, it was one of the best experience in education ever!!!. I never thought that sitting alone facing the computer could so enjoyable and fun. They were able mix jokes with seriousness. And in many way, even it is hard to say, I am coming into realizing how bad of a driver I became. But from now one, I would do my best to change. This defensive driving course was really refreshing. Close to six hours passed I did not even realize it. Thank you for the experience, I do not regret a single second I spent in your company.

- MAMADOU C. Albany, New York

I took your online defensive driving course in NY and really enjoyed it very much and I am looking forward to taking it again J. I think it is the best thing that New York State has come up with as of late. I am going to recommend it to my friends and co-workers. Thank you!

I must say I've heard horror stories from my friends about taking defensive driving school class. I honestly don't have one bad thing to say it was really simple and enjoyable.

-Andrew K. Long Island, New York

The Improv Traffic School has made this process an actual joy to experience. I've gained some knowledge, had a good time doing it and everyone who helped me on the phone was so incredibly kind and sweet. THANK YOU! Blessings.

Kathleen C. Brooklyn N.Y.

This defensive driving course is awesome!

Anthony D. Buffalo N.Y.

What a great way to save on your auto insurance

Cecil C. New York, New York

The course was very engaging and humorous. I loved the video clips but the comic strips and situations kept me laughing. I appreciate the fact of using humor for a boring class to keep the student's attention. Its very entertaining yet very informative. I would definitely recommend this defensive driving class instruction to others. I completed the course over a two day span since I drive a yellow cab for 12 hours from 5pm to 5am. This course was a breath of fresh air after a long, stress-filled night of driving. Thanks for a new perspective on this subject.

-Bashir A. Albany NY

This is really great service for NY drivers, this is my second time doing defensive driving and I really enjoy doing with you, after 3 years I will be back.

-Martha K. New York NY

I have taken the classroom course 3 times, and the last time the instructor was pretty entertaining. This course, however, was much more convenient and also entertaining.

-Sharon A. Brooklyn, NY

This course was excellent and entertaining while delivering important life saving information. I plan to see if IMPROV has other types of classes because their delivery was excellent.

-Kim B. Buffalo NY
