The RMV may require you to complete one or more of the following classes or programs if you incur a suspension/revocation:
The RMV may require an operator to attend the Massachusetts driver retraining program. This program is sponsored by the National Safety Council and aims to change operator's behavior behind the wheel, as required by Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 175 Section 113B. Through this classroom course, operators learn why they continue to have driving-related problems and how they can take responsibility for their actions.
If the operator is required to take 2 classes as a result of 2 pending 3 surchargeable event suspensions, he/she may be allowed to take the online course to meet the obligation of the 2nd class. A determination will be made that an online course may be appropriate for an individual with multiple course requirements by the RMV and then the NSC will be notified.
It may be possible for an operator to complete this program in another state. The operator must contact the NSC, and they will handle the request. A comparable course is available in many other states. Additional fees may be required by the NSC to post an out-of-state completion to the Massachusetts system. The RMV will not accept any out-of-state paper certificates of completion. For more course information, including scheduling, please refer to the National Safety Council website.
The RMV may require an operator to attend a State Courts Against Road Rage course. This course was developed to educate younger operators charged with serious motor vehicle violations. SCARR is intended to make operators face their driving behaviors, discuss how they will change their behavior, understand the possible serious consequences involved with irresponsible and dangerous driving, and learn how to handle and prevent dangerous driving scenarios. This class is required for certain Junior Operator License/permit suspensions. For more information about the SCARR course, please refer to the National Safety Council website.
The RMV may require an operator to attend a driver attitudinal retraining course. This class is required for certain Junior Operator License/permit suspensions. The operator may choose from several course options in order to fulfill a driver attitudinal retraining requirement. An operator will need to register for and attend only one of the listed attitudinal courses to achieve the credit, unless instructed otherwise by an RMV hearings officer.
The RMV may require an operator to attend a drug or alcohol counseling and/or education program. The operator may attend any alcohol counseling and/or alcohol education program which has been approved by the Department of Public Health to fulfill this requirement. Search for an approved counseling/education program on the Massachusetts Substance Abuse Information and Education Helpline website.
The operator must bring proof of enrollment or completion in a drug or alcohol counseling and/or education program to an RMV hearings officer during a reinstatement hearing.
Alcohol violators under the age of 21 will be required to attend a Youth Alcohol Program. The operator may attend any youth alcohol program approved by the Department of Public Health to fulfill this requirement. Search for an approved counseling/education program on the Massachusetts Substance Abuse Information and Education Helpline website. The operator must bring proof of enrollment in a Youth Alcohol Education Program to an RMV hearings officer during a reinstatement hearing.
