No points will be assessed to your Missouri driver’s records if you meet these requirements.However, this program is not available for a violation committed in a commercial motor vehicle or for any driver who has a commercial driver’s license (CDL) from Missouri or any other state. If you choose to attend DIP, you must complete an approved DIP course within 60 days of your guilty plea and you must have the DIP program you attend send proof of completion to the Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR), Driver License Bureau, P.
