Basic Driver Improvement Course

The Basic Driver Improvement Course program permits eligible drivers to take a driver improvement course, either on-line or in a classroom.

The Secretary of State will not make the points or information from the ticket available to insurance companies for drivers who successfully complete the BDIC through an approved sponsor.

The BDIC serves as a refresher of basic traffic safety principles. The course requires a minimum four hours of study before the first attempt to pass the final test. This refresher course can improve safety for all Michigan drivers.

The Secretary of State will notify eligible drivers. Eligible drivers have 60 days to arrange for and successfully complete the BDIC.  The course completion deadline is listed on the notice of eligibility.  Eligible drivers should begin the BDIC well before the deadline to ensure it can be completed before the deadline. The approved sponsor will notify the Secretary of State of course results.

The fee for the course is determined by the course sponsor but must not exceed $100 as required by law. If you have additional questions, please review the FAQs.
