Missouri Driver Improvement Program (DIP)
Our Missouri Driver Improvement Program is approved by the Missouri Safety Center (MSC).To be eligible for this 8-hour course, you must hold a valid, non-commercial Missouri driver’s license, and you must complete this course within 60 days of approval from the Fine Collection Center (FCC).
How the Missouri Driver Improvement Program (DIP) Works
DriveSafeToday’s Missouri Driver Improvement Program (DIP) is designed for drivers who have been charged for a moving violation within a county where the FCC has approved the driver improvement program.Upon pleading guilty to the charges and paying the FCC fine, drivers are automatically eligible to attend an authorized program to avoid a driver’s license point penalty. Note: Offenses committed in a commercial motor vehicle or by any driver who has a commercial driver’s license from Missouri or any other state are ineligible for the Driver Improvement Program. Enrolling in this program is voluntary. However, if you choose to attend the program, you must do so within 60 days of your guilty plea. No points will be added to your Missouri driving records if you meet these requirements.
Form 4444 and Completing the Missouri Driver Improvement Program
If you paid your FCC fine before completing the Missouri Driver Improvement Program, DriveSafeToday will notify the Missouri Driver License Bureau on your behalf by sending DIP Form 4444.If you did not pay your fine through the FCC and attended court instead, we will send Form 4444 directly to you so that you may submit it to the court as proof of completion. To receive a discount on your car insurance (if eligible), you must submit Form 4444 to your insurance agent.
