Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC)

At this time, the Union County IDRC is not holding educational classes and persons identified as a Union County resident or have been assigned to Union County have been placed on a waitlist.

If you would like to complete your IDRC requirements in Union County, no additional action is needed. You will receive a scheduling notice with your assigned dates when class dates become available.

However, you may request for your case to be transferred to another county’s IDRC program. If you would like to request a transfer, please follow the instructions below.

If you have questions, please email idrc@ucnj.org or call 888-845-3434 or 908-558-2288.  Please note that there may be a delay in IDRC response due to increased call/email volume during this time

Would you like to transfer?

If you would like to complete your IDRC program requirements, including educational classes[1], in another county, you must:

  1. Contact one of the below County IDRCs to ask if they have any openings and agree to accept a transfer of your case[2]; and
  2. Contact the Union County IDRC to request a transfer of your case. 

Once your case is transferred, you will receive a scheduling notice with your assigned IDRC class dates and information on how to complete any pre-registration information for that IDRC.
