I can't get anything less than 5 hours long?
I am thinking of opening two laptops and running two courses at the same time - for me and wife. Might as well maximize the time spent. ::)

It's 4 questions, and you only need to get 3 correct.

It's not videos, so can quickly read thru if you're nervous you won't know the answers. However, its mostly common sense and information that you probably know already from when you took the test for your license.

Looking to take a defensive driving course to save on insurance in NJ. What worked for you? Thanks.

Minimum amount of time must elapse for each section.  so the total time taking the course is at least X. (I forgot how long.)
Definitely not too difficult a course.

Just finished one online. I did other stuff while time elapsed. I think total is 6 hours. You have 30 days to complete it.  There were 4 sections. Section 3 was the longest. I sort of skimmed it and they have a review page. Cost about $25.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Same, I let it run in the background. It was annoying but it saved me like $40 vs doing it at one of the 20 minute pop-ups.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Ive done for me and my wife. First time took me just under an hour. After I perfected the art of skipping through videos , it took under 45 min each.

I'm doing the course on Improv.

Do you really have to spend 6 hours on the course?
What happens if you complete it in say, 45 minutes, will they give you credit for it?

You do need to keep it running for 6 hours. You can keep it open in the background.
