Driver Improvement Program- DIP
The Driver Improvement Program is a four hour classroom program managed by MVC. This program is offered in lieu of a 30-day suspension for drivers who accumulate 12 to 14 points in more than two years. Information regarding the program is included in the Schedule Suspension Notice that you should have received in the mail from the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission. Up to three points will be removed from your driving record if you successfully complete the program.

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.
