Partners4Wellness electronically files your certificate immediately following your completion. A copy is mailed to your last known address. It is very important that your address is current at the time of your completion. If you are not sure we have your current address, check with the case manager.
After successfully completing this Program, you will be issued a DMV Form DL-101, Notice of Completion Certificate. This is your official document that states you have completed all requirements of the program. All Notice of Completion Certificates are processed electronically and are on file at the DMV by the next day. You will receive a copy by mail.
Your case manager can answer most of your questions at your Face-to-Face activity or will be direct you to the program manager.
Your confidentiality is very important to this program. We go to great lengths to maintain your privacy, including closing doors during counseling and keeping files in a locked room which only certain staff can access. You are asked at initial enrollment in the program to provide an emergency contact name and number. In addition you are asked to complete and sign a Confidentiality Statement which states the names of persons with whom we can discuss your case. Inquiries about your enrollment, attendance and other aspects of your case are never given out without your prior permission except as provided by law.
You must report to the Front Office in order to be rescheduled back into group and classes. You may not go directly to your old group because your space in that group is no longer available. You may request your old group, but there may not be space in the requested group or education class.
You are allowed 10 days from the end date of your LOA to come in person and reschedule your activities. If you do not do so, you may be dismissed from the program. A telephone call is not acceptable.
