Fulton Montgomery Counties Drinking Driver Program

40 Years Helping Motorists in Fulton-Montgomery Counties

On October 1, 1975 the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles started the Drinking Driver Program with the purpose of providing education and screening for rehabilitation to motorists convicted of alcohol or drug related driving offenses, in order to reduce the threat to the lives and well-being of the citizens of this State posed by alcohol and drug related driving.

The FMC DDP Program consists of 16 hours of classroom education conducted over a seven-week period, and screening of motorists for indications of possible alcohol or drug abuse. Some motorists are required to obtain an evaluation and possible treatment for alcohol or drug abuse before their full New York State driver’s license privileges can be restored.

New York State recognizes and approves D. Hugo and Associates as the provider for the Fulton-Montgomery Counties Drinking Driver Program (FMC DDP). The staff at D. Hugo and Associates is proud to represent the NYS Drinking Driver Program and to continue in its mission of providing safer driving conditions for both counties.
