Effective December 31, 2010, the Basic Driver Improvement Course (BDIC) program permits eligible drivers to take a driver improvement course in a classroom.
The Secretary of State will not make the points or information from the ticket available to insurance companies for drivers who successfully complete the BDIC through Gold-Key North Michigan Basic Driver.
The BDIC serves as a refresher of basic traffic safety principles. This refresher course can improve safety for all Michigan drivers.
The Secretary of State will notify eligible drivers. Eligible drivers have 60 days to arrange for and successfully complete the BDIC. The approved provider will notify the Secretary of State of course results.
CLASS COST $85.00
Note to parents from instructor: I strongly recommend your son or daughter take my class. The impact of my stories and experiences as a trained EMT/Firefighter will change their driving habits and possibly save their lives.

Jim Gohlke, the instructor for the Class, was the first individual to teach the BDIC in Michigan. He is certified and an approved instructor by National Safety Council and Michigan Secretary of State. In addition to the course guide he uses he has many "Life Lesson" examples. Some serious and some hilarious to make the course interesting. He provides compelling information from his own personal life and experience of being a volunteer Fire Fighter, Trained EMT and Student Driver Instructor.
Throughout the class he focuses on the young, middle aged and elderly. Providing them with many thought provoking considerations about their driving behavior. Giving consideration to when they should be driving, When they shouldn't be driving or if they should be driving at all because of physical limitations, illness or age.
We realize you have many choices on where to take the class but Gohlke promises the class to be educational as well as entertaining.
