Driver Improvement Program (DIP)
Driver Improvement Program @ HCC
You must register before class - no walk-ins permitted.
The Driver Improvement Program (DIP) is a one-day course and meets on Saturdays from 1 p.m. - 6 p.m. @ the HCC main campus.
Driver Improvement is a 4-8 hour instructional program that is intended to provide driver rehabilitation. You may have been assigned to the driver improvement program for one of the following reasons:
You were referred by a District Court Judge;
You were referred by an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) in the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH);
You were 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. 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. You must bring the letter you received from the MVA or the courts to the class along with a government-issued photo ID such as a driver's license.
Refund policy: no refund unless course is canceled or participant drops 24 hours in advance.
Cancellation policy: Class may be cancelled due to low enrollment or inclement weather. You will be contacted by phone or email if the class is cancelled because of low enrollment; see HCC's web page or listen to local media for inclement weather closings.
Note: Per the MVA, the updating of the participant's driving record is dependent on the provider transmitting the DIP completion information to the MVA within 24 hours of completing the program (next business day). The MVA may not remove a suspension, or reinstate the participant's driving privilege, until the provider submits the program completion information updates to the participant's driving record.
See the MVA's website for more information on the MVA DIP requirements and regulations.
