After you complete the Operator Retraining Class:
- If the class is completed prior to the effective date of suspension, the suspension will be removed only after the DMV receives confirmation of the class completion from the vendor.
- To avoid suspension you must schedule and complete your class at least 2 weeks prior to the effective suspension date, as the vendor may take that time to submit results.
- If the class is completed on or after the effective date of suspension you must also pay a $175.00 restoration fee. The fee may be paid online. Alternately, you may pay the $175.00 by check or money order made payable to "DMV" by mail to the following address:
State of Connecticut
Department of Motor Vehicles
Driver Services Division
60 State Street
Wethersfield, CT 06161-1013
Please provide your name, date of birth, and current address with all correspondence.
Moving Violations after completion of the Operator Retraining Class:
- After completion of an Operator Retraining Program, you must complete 36 consecutive months without having any additional moving violations or suspension violations specified in Connecticut General Statute Section 14-111g(a) added to your driving history.
- If an additional moving violation is added to your driving record, DMV will suspend your driver's license or operating privilege for 30 days for the first violation, 60 days for a second violation, and 90 days for a third or subsequent violation. To be reinstated after the suspension, you must pay a $175.00 restoration fee.
