What will I learn in an 8-hour driver improvement clinic?

We teach our students to recognize their own driving habits, improve them and develop an attitude to take responsibility for the safety of our highways.

How will the DMV or Court know that I have attended an 8-hour, DMV-approved clinic?

Upon satisfactory completion of the course, ABCDIC will electronically submit the information to the Virginia DMV. ABCDIC will not be responsible for submitting the information to the courts or insurance companies.  Students will also receive a course completion certificate, which may be submitted (by the student) to the DMV or court. All students are ultimately responsible for seeing that his/her course completion certificate is submitted to the appropriate entity (i.e. DMV, Virginia Traffic Court, insurance company).
