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.
The fee for the course is $75. Drivers must also pay an additional $75 fee directly to MVC.
DIP (ADD4) is a fast-paced, four-hour driver improvement program that offers practical strategies to reduce collision-related injuries, fatalities, and costs. It addresses the importance of attitude in preventing accidents and reinforces the good driving skills students already have. Most importantly, DIP (ADD4) shows students the consequences of the choices they make behind the wheel and puts defensive driving in a personal context.
