Completion of the IDCMP
You will be considered completed with the IDCMP when all aspects of the program that are required to be completed by you are fully completed and all fees have been paid in full, including any fees for service from your treatment provider.
Once you have completed all components, your completion notification form will be sent within five days to: the NH Department of Motor Vehicles, the Court where you were sentenced, the Court prosecutor, and the NH Bureau of Drug & Alcohol Services. This form must be received by the DMV prior to restoration of your privilege to operate. Should you require an approval of the Court prior to restoration, for either a reduction in your revocation period or as a result of an indefinite revocation, you will need to file the “Motion to Reduce License Suspension” form with the court.
For those people who have been convicted of DWI First offense, DWI Second First Offense, or Misdemeanor Aggravated DWI, CAIP will send with the above form a copy of the “Program Compliance Report” to the NH DMV, which will outline compliance with the intake date requirements, evaluation and Service Plan requirements (if needed), and completion of the education program within the past five years. As well, a copy of the “Notice of Client Status with IDCMP” form which lists the dates when all the program requirements were met; this form is filed also with the court.
The Bureau of Financial Responsibility within the NH Department of Safety is responsible for the restoration process of your privilege to operate. In order for your driving privilege to be reinstated once you have completed the program, NH DMV requires the following:
1.) Period of suspension must be over. If you have filed a motion for a reduction in your revocation period, the court order must have been received by DMV prior to early restoration.
2.) SR-22 Form must be filed with NH DMV at the Financial Responsibility division. You must contact your insurance agent to get this form. It proves that you have a minimum amount of liability insurance on either your vehicle, or on your license should you not have a vehicle.
3.) Proof that you have completed an Impaired Driver Care Management Program. This will be furnished to NH DMV by CAIP for you upon your completion of all aspects of the program.

4.) Proof that you have completed any jail time ordered by the court if this was required in your case.
5.) $100 reinstatement fee: this can be sent in to NH Department of Safety, Financial Responsibility, Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301, OR you can pay this in person. Be sure you put your date of birth on any money order or check submitted. Money orders and checks should be made out to: NH DMV.
6.) There must be no other suspensions, including habitual offender suspension, in place.

Hearings at DMV
Should you not agree with the Service Plan made as a result of your evaluation, you may request a hearing at the NH Bureau of Hearings within the Department of Safety. You will need to fill out and send in the “Request for Impaired Driver Care Management Program (IDCMP) Service Plan Hearing” form which can be found at
Generally speaking, your hearing will be scheduled within one month. Someone from our program will be at the hearing to document the basis for the service plan recommendations that were made for you. You have the right to have an attorney present with you, or any other witnesses you feel are important to support your case. It is recommended by CAIP that you continue to fulfill your Service Plan requirements while you are waiting for the hearing so that you will not lose any time towards your restoration should the hearing officer find that the Service Plan is warranted.
