NJ Driver Improvement Program

New Jersey Remedial Driver Programs

New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) has two remedial driver programs: Driver Improvement Program (DIP) for experienced drivers and Probationary Driver Program (PDP) for new drivers. Drivers completing these programs receive a three point reduction credit.

Driver Improvement Program - DIP

The Driver Improvement Program is a four hour classroom course offered in lieu of a 30-day suspension for drivers who accumulate 12 to 14 points in more than two years. More detailed information about the program is included in the Scheduled Suspension Notice that you will receive in the mail from the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission. If you have checked #2 on your Scheduled Suspension Notice and returned it to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission along with your $75.00 administrative fee, please proceed with your online registration. Up to three points will be removed from your driving record if you successfully complete the program. Failure to complete this course will result in a 30-day suspension of your driving privileges. To have your driving privileges restored, you MUST pay a $100.00 restoration fee.

Per the regulations, Attitudinal Dynamics of Driving, DDC-ADD, from the National Safety Council is the ONLY course approved for the DIP. In the four-hour classroom DDC-ADD course, drivers will learn how choices they make while driving could result in serious financial, legal, and personal costs as well as how their attitude impacts on-the-road decision making. A plan is developed for making long-term driving behavior changes.

The fee for taking this classroom program is $75. There is an additional $75 fee due to the Motor Vehicle Commission as well.

Probationary Driver Program - PDP

Drivers that are issued a driver license permit for the first time are probationary drivers and will have to serve a two-year probationary period. While in the probationary period, drivers who are convicted of two or more moving violations with a total of four or more points, will receive a Fee Due Notice from the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission requiring the driver to enroll in the Probationary Driver Program to correct improper or dangerous driving practices. If you have returned your Fee Due Notice along with your $75.00 administrative fee to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, please proceed with your online registration. Failure to complete this course will result in an indefinite suspension of your driving privileges. To have your driving privileges restored, you will be required to enroll in the Probationary Driver Program and also pay a $175.00 restoration fee to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.

Per the regulations, Alive at 25® offered by the National Safety Council is an approved course for the PDP. Alive at 25® is a highly interactive four-hour classroom intervention program that zeroes in on drivers ages 16 to 25 — the group most likely to be involved in a fatal collision. Alive at 25® uses workbook exercises, group discussions, role-playing and short lectures to help keep young drivers safe on the road.

The fee for taking this classroom program is $75. There is an additional $75 fee due to the Motor Vehicle Commission as well.
