The six-hour course is held at the Chamber office located at 2375 Route 14A just south of the Village of Penn Yan. Successful completion of the course affords drivers a ten-percent reduction in their liability and collision insurance premiums, a four-point reduction on their DMV record and reminds drivers of the importance of driving safely. The cost of the six-hour course is $35. Advance registration is mandatory, as class size is limited.
