The Mission of the Fulton-Montgomery Counties Drinking Driver Program (FMC-DDP) is to make Fulton and Montgomery County Highways safer for motorists and their families. Working together, saving lives, reducing the number and severity of accidents, and losses caused by drivers impaired by alcohol and drugs.
If convicted of an alcohol or drug related driving offense, your license or privilege to drive in New York State will be revoked or suspended.
If the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles determines you are eligible (and you do apply) for a conditional license or conditional driving privileges, you will be mandated to participate in the NYS Impaired Drinking Driver Program. A conditional license will allow you to legally drive within certain limitations.
The court may mandate the Drinking Driver Program as a condition of your sentence. This does not guarantee you will be granted a conditional license, but will still be required to take the DDP Program.
The Fulton-Montgomery Counties Drinking Driver Program (FMC DDP) is designed to be both instructive and rehabilitative.

The FMC DDP program is a mandated 16 hour, 7 week curriculum that follows the “Prime for Life” model which involves visual as well as oral instructions, accompanied by a student workbook. Weekly sessions follow in sequential order, building upon the previous weeks lesson.
Class participants must report to class on time and are expected to actively participate in the program, including all assignments.
If a participant misses a class, they will be rescheduled to the next available class, beginning with the class they missed.
Two missed classes or counseling appointments without contacting the FMC DDP Director at (518) 866-9369 will result in an automatic drop from the FMC DDP program and loss of conditional license.
Participants must not be under the influence of alcohol or any other mood altering substances during or prior to sessions.
Confidentiality must be maintained at all times. All information discussed and shared within the FMC DDP is confidential.
Failure to complete all phases (including evaluation or treatment, if required) of the FMC DDP will result in the loss of your conditional license. The original suspension or revocation will then be fully reinstated.
Note: A conditional license is not valid for driving a vehicle that requires the operator to hold a commercial (CDL) driver license or taxicab. Conditional licenses are not valid driving to and from high school.
