Weekend Intervention Program

Phyllis Cole, M.A., Director

Driver’s License Point Credit Information

The Weekend Intervention Program has been designed with your best interests in mind, so we are really pleased to be able to offer you the chance to earn a two-point credit against the points charged against your driver's license.

As you may know, points are charged to your operator's license after some driving convictions. If you accumulate enough points, your driving privileges are suspended. Because we offer an Ohio Department of Public Safety/BMV certified Remedial Driving Program, those WIP clients who complete the remedial driving part of our program may be eligible for a two-point credit against those points charged to their licenses. Also, in some cases, completing the course may qualify you for lower insurance rates; you may want to check with your agent to see if you qualify.

This portion of the program will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Friday morning. It concludes at about 4:30 p.m.

We strongly encourage you to check with your attorney or call the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, License Information Center at (614) 752-7500, to determine your eligibility and whether applying for these points would be beneficial to you at this time.

72-Hour Clients Only

All clients completing the 72-Hour Weekend Intervention Program will attend the Remedial Driving Program as part of their Weekend Intervention Program attendance. For those individuals assigned to the 72-Hour Program who wish to apply to the Ohio Department of Public Safety/BMV for the two-point credit, it is possible by following this simple procedure:

  • Let us know you would like to apply for the credit by returning the Driver's License Point Credit Form along with your registration materials.
  • Send $25.00 for administrative costs along with your program fees and registration material two weeks before you come to the program. (This is not part of the program registration fee.)
48-Hour Clients Only

For those individuals assigned to attend the 48-Hour (Fri-Sun) Weekend Intervention Program, it is also possible to participate in the Remedial Driving Program by following this simple procedure:

  • Let us know you would like to apply for the credit by returning the Driver's License Point Credit Form along with your registration materials.
  • Send $55.00 for administrative costs along with your program fees and registration material two weeks before you come to the program. (This is not part of the program registration fee.)

The Weekend Intervention Program will be responsible for the paperwork and will apply for the credit for you. We will also maintain and store your records for three years. We'll be glad to answer any inquiries about your completion of the course for that period of time.

Once again, call your attorney or the Bureau of Motor Vehicles if you have any questions about your eligibility for the credit and its benefit to you. If you have any questions about our program, you can reach us Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. at (937) 775-3050.
