8 hour Remedial Driving Course
The 8 hour Traffic Safety Course MUST be completed as part of the Driver Intervention Program (DIP) to meet the requirements of OAC 5122-29-12 DIP. To successfully complete traffic safety all offenders must complete the traffic safety course components, which includes written testing at the end of the day. Many ARC participants have received points on their license associated with their offense, ARC is certified to offer the 2point credit or 12 point reinstatement (Ohio Dept. of Safety’s Remedial Driving Course Chapter 4501-21 Remedial Driving Courses) with the successful completion of the DIP traffic safety curriculum. Successful completion is defined as passing the written test with a score of 75% or above. If you are caught cheating, you will be denied the point option. Also, it is completely your choice to sign up for the remedial points, if you pass the test.

ARC complies with 42CFR part 2 – Confidentiality
