Defensive driving

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing health crisis, the UFT has had to postpone all of its in-person classes for the time being. However, we know how much our members and their families rely on the savings they get by taking the UFT Defensive Driving course and in these difficult times we want to help keep that benefit going. That being said we have culled a list of online Defensive Driving classes from the New York State and New Jersey State Department of Motor Vehicles which members can register for and complete from the comfort of their own homes.

Disclaimer: These classes, their sponsors and the links provided are not connected in any way to the UFT, we are simply passing along the information so that you, our members, can still take advantage of this popular member benefit.

**PLEASE NOTE: prices may vary slightly due to state/locality of resident driver**
