What is the IDRC?
The Intoxicated Drivers Resource Center is a court ordered 12-hour education program. This program is mandated for anyone convicted of a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) offense in NJ. Attendance is mandatory as class takes place of jail time; however, jail time cannot be substituted for IDRC participation. For questions about your original scheduling for the 12-hour education program, please call 609-815-3100.
Please Note: If you have received a scheduling letter from the state regarding your IDRC attendance, please know that you will be receiving another informational letter directly from the Morris/Warren IDRC. This second letter will give clear instructions on how to register for your class. You will receive this letter approximately 2 weeks prior to your scheduled class date.
Anyone convicted of a second offense and sentenced to the 48-hour IDRC program will be scheduled to complete the program in Passaic County at the regional IDRC center. Questions on the 48-hour program should be directed to: 973-777-2048.
Morris and Warren IDRC classes are in English only, if you require a Spanish speaking program please call the IDRC at 973-957-0805 x118.

Fee is Due Upon Arrival
The class fee is $264.00, payable on the first day prior to the start of class. This fee is payable by MONEY ORDER AND CASHIERS CHECKS ONLY. Personal checks and credit cards are not accepted. The IDRC class fee is in addition to any other fees due as a result of a DUI conviction. The IDRC class fee has not been previously paid online, in court or to Motor Vehicles. The IDRC cannot accept class fees in advance and does not offer payment plans. A receipt is given regardless of how a payment is made.
Bring Your Lunch
All IDRC clients must bring their lunch to class. Ordering in, having food delivered, and/or leaving the premises are direct violations of IDRC protocols. Violations of these protocols will result in immediate dismissal from class. Failure to complete class in its entirety for any reason results in a noncompliance to the court and Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC). Rescheduling another date to complete the class is at the IDRC Director’s discretion and based on class size / availability.
All Electronic devices PROHIBITED
The use of any and all electronic devices (including but not limited to Apple devices, cell phones, watches, Air buds, iPods, iPads, headphones, laptops, cameras, etc.) is strictly prohibited and enforced in the Morris/Warren County IDRC building(s) during IDRC class times. Any violation of the electronic device policy will result in immediate removal from class and a noncompliance to the court and MVC. Rescheduling another date to complete the class is at the IDRC Director’s discretion and based on class size / availability.
Morris and Warren IDRC are both 12-hour IDRC programs. The class runs for 12 hours over a two-day period. Morris IDRC Class runs from 8:45am — 4:00pm both days; class days vary by county. Clients must attend both days consecutively to fulfill their legal requirements.
Initial IDRC Class Scheduling
The Intoxicated Drivers Program (IDP) in Trenton is directly responsible for scheduling every client. Clients will receive a scheduling notice in the mail at the address that was provided to the court at the time of sentencing. Please note this process can take 2-4 weeks. For questions about original scheduling, please call 609-815-3100. The Morris and Warren Intoxicated Drivers Resource Center (IDRC) does not do any original scheduling. Class walk-ins are not accepted.
RESCHEDULING of an Initial Class Date
According to NJ State Regulations 10:162-3.3; No client shall be permitted to reschedule an IDRC class date without the follow documentation being received by the IDRC office within 10 days of the scheduled class date:
- Health emergency (self or family member) – with physician’s letter signed and dated on provider letterhead
- Death – provide a copy of the obituary within 10 days
- Family emergency- illness / documented by medical/ school/ professional
- Documented work emergency – provide proof of travel plans (i.e., airline reservations/ letter from client’s employer expressing hardship of class attendance)
Based on the above reasons, a client would be permitted one reschedule with satisfactory documentation. Reschedule questions should be directed to the rescheduled desk at 973-957-0805 x118. Again, class walk-ins are not accepted.
If you are a multiple offender with a ten-year license suspension, you must contact the IDRC within your last year of license suspension to make arrangements for a multiple offender evaluation. Evaluations are done by appointment only. You will not be able to get your license back without this. Please call Sylvia at 973-957-0805 x123.
