Coronavirus Update

Urgent: To ensure the health and wellbeing of our instructors and students due to current coronavirus pandemic, the National Safety Council and the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (MA RMV) are canceling all Massachusetts classroom Driver Retraining Program classes through April 6. The MA RMV has temporarily approved an online class for delivery of the statutorily required content, which will be available beginning April 6. Your online participation will count as your in-person class requirement.

  • If you were already enrolled in a Driver Retraining Program classroom class scheduled during this time period, you will automatically be transferred into the online class. Look for mail or email in the coming days that includes a unique access code and instructions on how to login and complete your 4-hour online class.
  • For anyone with a deadline to complete the NSC course between March 1 and April 30, the RMV will provide an additional 90 days to complete the requirement.
  • The RMV is working as quickly as possible to extend deadlines in their system. If you were registered for an NSC class that was scheduled to occur over the last few days or in the days ahead, the RMV is working to manually update your record to account for the additional time until a technical solution can be implemented.
  • You may check your license status by accessing your profile at

At this time, there are no faster alternatives for you to complete the Driver Retraining Program. NSC will post additional information to this website as more details become available.
