Commercial Driver Improvement Clinics, licensed by DMV, are designed specifically for drivers who hold commercial driver's licenses (CDL) or who commit an offense while operating a commercial motor vehicle. DMV awards five safe driving points, once every 24 months, to individuals who successfully complete an eight-hour state-approved commercial driver improvement course. The highest safe driving point balance a customer may accumulate on their driving record is five points. An individual may volunteer or be required by DMV or a court to attend a clinic. Companies may also send their employees to a clinic for training on safe driving. Currently, DMV has licensed commercial driver improvement clinics located throughout the state.
DMV is committed to promoting transportation safety through the certification of quality driver training programs.
