Impaired Driver Program

Orange County Community College has been providing the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles’Impaired Driver Program (IDP) since 1975.  The program provides sixteen-hours of education over a minimum of a seven week period for motorists who have been convicted of DWI/DWAI.  In addition to classroom education, students are screened and referrals are made, if warranted, for evaluation and treatment.  Enrollment is limited only to those motorists referred to the program by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles.     

Classes are held weeknight evenings and also on Saturday mornings for those students who are unable to attend weeknights.  Three to four new classes begin each month so there is never a long waiting period to begin the program. Impaired Driver Logo Participants are considered non-credit students of SUNY Orange and since classes are held at our campus, they are provided with the assurance of attending the program in a confidential setting.   

To determine eligibility for enrollment, visit an Orange County Department of Motor Vehicles office in Middletown, Port Jervis or Newburgh.
