If your license or privilege to drive in New York State is suspended or revoked for an alcohol or drug-related driving conviction, you may be eligible for a conditional driver’s license or full restoration of your driving privileges if you participate in New York State’s Impaired Driver Program (IDP) (formerly known as the Drinking Driver Program).
Motorists must first register for the Program by going to a local DMV office who will provide class availability and upcoming start dates. Enrollment is limited to only those motorists referred to the program by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles.
SUNY Broome offers Tuesday evening (6:00 pm) and Saturday morning (9:00 am) classes. The course fee is $233. Upon completing registration with the DMV, students should contact the SUNY Broome Continuing Education Office at 607-778-5012 to complete their registration and arrange payment for the Program. SUNY Broome accepts Mastercard, Visa, cash, check, and money order.
The 16-hour, seven-session program is held in SUNY Broome classrooms in Binghamton (Broome County), allowing participants to attend the program in a convenient, safe, confidential, and accessible setting. Class schedules, parking details, classroom location, and other Program details will be provided to the student once they contact the Continuing Education Office at SUNY Broome.
SUNY Broome Community College has sponsored the Impaired Driver Program since 1975. It is part of New York’s effort to reduce personal and property losses caused by drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs. With the guidance of SUNY Broome’s experienced educational staff, participants discuss the social, medical, legal, and driver safety problems caused by alcohol and other drug abuse. The program includes classroom education, screening, and, if warranted, assessment and treatment.
