AN ACT to amend the insurance law, in relation to requiring an appropri-
  ate reduction in premium charges for any insured  that  completes  any
  driver education curriculum at any high school

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subsection (a) of section 2336 of  the  insurance  law,  as
amended  by  chapter  751  of  the  laws  of 2005, is amended to read as
follows:
  (a) Any schedule of rates or rating plan for motor  vehicle  liability
and  collision  insurance  submitted to the superintendent shall provide
for an appropriate reduction in premium charges for any  insured  for  a
three  year  period  after  successfully completing: (I) a motor vehicle
accident prevention course,  known  as  the  national  safety  council's
defensive  driving  course,  [or]  (II)  any  driver  improvement course
approved by the department of motor vehicles as being equivalent to  the
national  safety council's defensive driving course, OR (III) THE DRIVER
EDUCATION COURSE PRESCRIBED BY THE COMMISSIONER OF MOTOR VEHICLES PURSU-
ANT TO SUBDIVISION FOUR OF SECTION FIVE HUNDRED TWO OF THE  VEHICLE  AND
TRAFFIC  LAW,  provided  that, except as provided in article twelve-C of
the vehicle and traffic law, there shall be no reduction in premiums for
a self instruction defensive driving course or a course which  does  not
provide  for  actual classroom instruction for a minimum number of hours
as determined by the department of motor  vehicles.  Such  reduction  in
premium  charges  shall be subsequently modified to the extent appropri-
ate, based upon analysis of loss experience statistics and  other  rele-
vant factors. All such accident prevention courses shall be monitored by
the  department  of  motor  vehicles  and  shall  include  components of
instruction in "Road Rage" awareness and in "Work Zone Safety" awareness

                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
