Yes.  Failure to take a retraining class will result in driver’s license suspension. If the license is suspended, removal of the suspension will occur only after the DMV receives confirmation from NSC that you have completed the course and you pay the $175 restoration fee to the CT DMV.

The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles will send a letter and may require a motor vehicle operator to successfully complete the Operator Retraining Program if you fall within the following guidelines:

  • If the driver is 24 or younger with two convictions involving either moving or suspension violations.
  • If the driver is 25 or older with three convictions involving either moving or suspension violations.
  • A driver who has been convicted of traveling faster than 75 mph in a highway work zone.
  • A driver of a commercial motor vehicle who is convicted of traveling faster than 65 mph in a highway work zone.

A motorist has 60 days from receipt of the letter from the CT DMV to complete the course. If a driver fails to complete the program within the 60 day period, the CT DMV will suspend the motorist’s license.

If you do not complete the ORP prior to the effective date of suspension, the CT DMV will suspend your driver’s license. Removal of the suspension will occur only after the DMV receives confirmation from NSC that you have completed the course and you pay the $175 restoration fee to the CT DMV.

Motorists are encouraged to complete the retraining class at least 14 days prior to the effective date of suspension to allow for processing prior to the suspension date.
