Drivers Improvement Program
The Driver Improvement Program (DIP) is an MVA mandated instructional program that is intended to provide driver rehabilitation for those who have been referred for one or more of the following reasons:
- Referral from a District Court Judge;
- Referral from an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) in the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH);
- Being convicted or granted probation before judgment for a moving violation while holding a provisional driver's license.
If a judge decided that you must attend a driver improvement program, you will receive a letter from the MVA approximately 4-6 weeks after your hearing date. If you do not attend a DIP class by the date specified on your referral letter, the MVA will suspend your driving privilege. You will be notified of the suspension by letter, in which you also will be instructed to surrender your driver's license to any full service MVA branch Office. However, after you have completed the DIP, you may apply for a new license.
