- Where is the 12 Hour Class on the Website?
There is no 12 hour class. You need to take the 8 Hour DIP class and the 4 Hour Reckless/Aggressive Program. Together, these two courses are the 12 hour program that you’ve been asked to take.
- I have to take DIP and Reckless, which order do I take them in?
There is no requirement to take one before the other. You may take them in any order. Most people do take 8 Hour DIP first but this is not required.
- Is Lunch provided during the 8 hour DIP? Where can I get food
We do not provide lunch. You will be given a lunch period around midday, the length of that lunch break is at the discretion of the instructor. Each of our locations is central and has food options close by. If you are unable to drive, we advise you to pack a lunch to bring with you to class.
- Is the Online DIP program accepted by courts?
Sometimes. There are some county courts and judges that will not accept the online certificate of completion and require that the DIP class be taken in person. If you are taking the DIP class for an upcoming court date, we advise that you speak to your attorney before taking the online program. They can give you better advice on whether or not the online certificate will be accepted. If you are completing the DIP program for the +5 Safe Driving Points, the online program is fine if you are 20+ years old.
- Why can’t I take the 4 hour course online?
There is no online version of this course that is recognized by the courts.
- Can I get +5 Points for the 4 hour course?
No. The DMV does not recognize this course and it exists only for court purposes. If you are ordered to take a 12 hour course, you will take both the 4 hour course and the 8 hour course.
- What happens if I ignore the DMV letter?
Your license will be suspended on the date stated in the DMV letter. There is no work-around and no excuse will be accepted by the DMV as to why you weren’t able to take the class on time. They do not care about your packed schedule, your school responsibilities or even your vacation plans and are under no legal requirement to waive your suspension or provide you an extension. If you are deployed for military service, you must inform your commanding officer who may request an extension on your behalf with the DMV.
- What reason do I put on the form?
You can choose either Court Ordered, Voluntary or DMV. You choose the one that applies. If a court has ordered you to take the class, you must choose Court. If you have not been ordered but are taking the class prior to a court appearance, then it is a voluntary course. If you have received a letter from the DMV ordering you to take the DIP course, then you choose DMV. If you did not receive a letter and have not appeared in court, the reason is almost always voluntary.
