Assessments are confidential and cost $100 plus $10.75 for your driving record if you have not obtained it yet. Assessments typically take about 60-90 minutes. Assessments consist of a clinical interview, review of your driving record, and review of other pertinent factors. In order to complete your assessment the following documents are needed:
A copy of your ticket
BAC report (if available)
Driving record (obtain an "instant and personal non certified" directly from NC DMV here)
Assessments are valid for 6 months. This is a state regulation. Should you not begin the recommendation within 6 months you will be required to complete another assessment and pay applicable fees again. Once treatment recommendations are completed they DO NOT expire based on court dates. In most instances it can be advisable to complete the recommendation shortly after the time of the assessment, even if completing the assessment pretrial.
