Schedule: Every Tuesday
What do I have to do if I am assigned to the Driver Improvement Program (DIP)?
The MVA referral letter will provide you with the requirements of the driver improvement program and a list of Driver Improvement Program (DIP) Providers. After receiving the letter, you must do the following:
- Contact a DIP provider directly for information regarding DIP location(s), available dates and times, and the fee associated with taking the program.
- Attend your selected class, being sure to take your MVA referral letter with you.
- If you misplace your referral letter and need a duplicate referral letter to take to class, please contact us, contact the Driver Improvement Programs unit in the Driver Instructional Services Division or visit an MVA branch office. If you visit a branch office, the branch representative will contact the DIP unit, which will print the duplicate referral letter. The letter will be available at the counter or will be faxed or mailed to you within 24 hours.
- Complete the DIP by the due date printed at the top right corner of the Driver Improvement Program referral letter.
The DIP class will last from 4 to 8 hours. Upon its completion, you will receive a certificate of completion from the provider. The certificate is for your records; the driver improvement program provider will separately notify the MVA of your successful completion.
