Driver Improvement Program
You may be required to attend a Driver Improvement class if you have either received three moving traffic convictions during a 12-month period or have been convicted of a serious violation (25 miles per hour or more above the posted speed limit), or have been required to attend by order of a Driver Improvement Hearing Officer. The Iowa Department of Transportation is authorized to suspend the driving privileges of anyone who is a habitual violator (Iowa Code Section 321.210 and DOT Administrative Rules Procedure 600.43) or commits a serious violation. If you do not successfully complete the Driver Improvement course within the time period on the attached schedule, a notice suspending your driving privileges will be sent to you. If you have more than three moving convictions within a 12-month period, this class may not prevent suspension of your driver's license and privileges.
