Responsible Driver Program

The Responsible Driver Program (RDP) is a remedial program for drivers who have received alcohol or drug related prohibitions. The Province of B.C., through a contract with Stroh Health Care, delivers the program to participants referred to them by the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles.

Drivers referred will receive a letter outlining remedial program requirements and what has been decided about your driving privileges.

After you register and pay for the program, you go through a structured telephone assessment. Based on this assessment, you are directed to one of two programs:

  1. An 8-hour; or
  2. A 16-hour program

Upon your completion of the program, a final report regarding your participation in the program is considered by the Superintendent in reaching a decision on your fitness to drive. Some drivers will be allowed to apply for a full-privilege driver's licence, while others will be required to have (or continue to drive with) an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicle.
