Innovative New Program Aimed at Drinking Drivers

Innovative New Program Aimed at Drinking Drivers

The Resource Training Center (TRTC) has been selected by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles as one of just four authorized providers in Erie County for its Drinking Driver Program (DDP). The program allows motorists convicted in New York State of alcohol- or drug-related driving violations to qualify for a conditional license or conditional driving privileges upon completion, thereby avoiding having their license or privilege to drive revoked or suspended. It fulfills both DMV and court-mandated training requirements.
