Drivers may request to attend a driver improvement clinic if they accumulate four points (on the eight-point scale) or seven points (on the 12-point scale) on their driving record.
To receive point credit, an individual must qualify and have a conference with an administrative hearings officer.
Drivers can attend driving improvement clinics once every five years. View the clinic schedule.
Upon satisfactory completion, three points are deducted from the driving record.
The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles sends a letter to any individual who might qualify for a driver improvement clinic. Upon notification, they must apply for a hearing and pay the associated $40 fee. NCDMV will then assign a hearing date.
Drivers who are assigned to a driver improvement clinic must pay a $65 clinic fee to the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles prior to attending the clinic.
