Avoiding Point Assessment on Your Driver’s License
If you are charged with a moving violation in a county that has authorized FCC to approve DIP, and you plead guilty and pay your fine and costs in full to FCC, you will automatically be approved to attend an authorized Driver Improvement Program course to avoid having points assessed on your Missouri driver’s license. However, this program is not available for a violation committed in a commercial motor vehicle or for any driver who has a commercial driver’s license (CDL) from Missouri or any other state. Attendance at DIP is not mandatory. If you choose to attend DIP, you must complete an approved DIP course within 60 days of your guilty plea and you must have the DIP program you attend send proof of completion to the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR), Driver License Bureau, P.O. Box 200, Jefferson City, MO 65105. No points will be assessed to your Missouri driver’s records if you meet these requirements. For violations committed while operating a motorcycle, the rider must attend an approved motorcycle-rider training course following the rules above to avoid point assessment.
The DIP course or Motorcycle Rider Course you attend will need to know the following to provide proof of course completions to DOR:
1. Court Originator Number: MOOSCAFCC
2. Court Name: Fine Collection Center
3. Court Case Number: Your traffic citation number found at top of citation
4. Conviction Date: Can be obtained on Missouri Case.net by entering your citation number in the case number search field. When your case comes up on the screen, click on the case number block. This will bring up the case header screen. Under disposition you will see “guilty plea” if your guilty plea has been processed. If the disposition is guilty plea, check the disposition date. This is the conviction date you will need. If the disposition reads “not disposed” your guilty plea is still pending. This could be because FCC has not processed your payment yet. It could also be because FCC has received your payment but has not yet received the original ticket from the law enforcement agency. You can not take a DIP course before you have the date of your conviction to provide to the course. Remember, you have 60 days after the conviction date to complete the course. If you can’t access the Internet or need help call FCC at (877) 866-3926 to obtain the information you need.
No person may attend the Driver Improvement Program to avoid point assessment more than one time in any 36 month period. Although course completion certificates should be sent directly to the Missouri Department of Revenue, if you receive one directly you should forward it to DOR.
For violations committed while operating a motorcycle, the rider must attend an approved motorcycle-rider training course following the rules above to avoid point assessment.
A moving violation, under Missouri law, is a “traffic violation where at the time of the violation the motor vehicle involved is in motion.” You should check with the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) to determine if a particular charge is a moving violation or for any other information concerning your driving record. You can reach the DOR help desk at (573) 751-4475.
Out of State Drivers
If your driver’s license is from a state other than Missouri, attendance at the Driver Improvement Program in Missouri will not guarantee that your home state will not assess points or otherwise enter a moving violation on your record. You should check with your home state authorities to determine what rules apply.
