Michigan Driver Improvement
Michigan Basic Driver Improvement is a 4-hour course that enables Michigan drivers to keep demerit points from being added
to their driver record and keep insurance companies from learning about a traffic citation. The Michigan
Department of State (DOS) regulates the program and licenses private schools to offer it. Drivers register with a school
and receive a Certificate of Completion upon finishing the coursework. The schools report the completion to the DOS.
The course can be taken online or in a classroom. The Department of State masks the points or information from
insurance companies for drivers who successfully complete a driver improvement course.
The Department of State will notify eligible drivers. Eligible drivers have 60 days to complete the course.
The course completion deadline is listed on the notice of eligibility.
