What Is the New York Driver Assessment Program?

When you are convicted of a traffic violation, you must pay a fine to the court.

Under the NY Driver Assessment Program, a motorist must pay the DMV each year for three years if they:

  • Incur six or more points on their driving record for violations occurring on or after November 18, 2004
  • Are convicted of an alcohol- or drug-related traffic infraction and the violation occurred on or after November 18, 2004
  • Refused to take a chemical test on or after November 18, 2004

Even when you know about the Driver Responsibility Assessment Program, the situation can still take you by surprise.

Here are a few other frequently asked questions about the law:

  • How will I be notified if I must pay the driver responsibility program tax? The DMV will send you a statement after the points, conviction, or refusal is entered on your driving record. The DMV will also examine your driving record every three months to determine if a new driver responsibility assessment is necessary. If there are no new incidents, the DMV will send annual bills.
  • Can I reduce the amount of the driver responsibility assessment by taking a point reduction class? No. The point reduction class can take up to four points off of your license, helping you keep insurance premiums low and avoid license suspension for too many points. It cannot reduce the fees.
  • What will happen if I fail to pay the driver responsibility assessment? Your driver's license, permit, or privileges will be suspended until it is paid.
