Continuing Education

The New York State Drinking Driver Program at BCC

If your license or privilege to drive in New York State is suspended or revoked for an alcohol or drug-related driving conviction, you may be eligible for a conditional driver’s license or full restoration of your driving privileges if you participate in New York State’s Drinking Driver Program (DDP).

Broome Community College has sponsored the Drinking Driver Program since 1975. It is part of New York’s effort to reduce personal and property losses caused by drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs. With the guidance of BCC’s experienced educational staff, participants discuss the social, medical, legal, and driver safety problems caused by alcohol and other drug abuse. The program includes classroom education, screening, and, if warranted, evaluation and treatment.

The 16-hour, seven-session program is held in BCC classrooms at locations in Binghamton (Broome County) and Owego (Tioga County), allowing participants to attend the program in a convenient, safe, confidential, and accessible setting.

Weekday evening and Saturday morning classes are available. Two to four new classes begin each month, so there is rarely a long wait to begin the program. The course fee is $225; we accept Mastercard, Visa, cash, check, and money order. Enrollment is limited only to those motorists referred to the program by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles.
