DUI Classes & Alcohol Education

By:

One of the possible consequences of a DUI that may be included in your sentence is an alcohol education or driver safety class.

DUI state laws are different in each state but some states require that you complete a DUI class after a conviction in the in DUI court.

The intensity of the course may depend on the severity of the charges, and whether the conviction is your first DUI, of if you've received DUIs in the past. With repeat offenses, you may be required to complete an alcohol or drug treatment program to show rehabilitation.

DUI Class

A DUI class is a defensive driving class that is comparable to a class you might take after a traffic violation. During DUI class, you will examine your drinking and drug-use behavior patterns and develop a plan to reduce a potential repeat offense.

DUI classes range in length, depending on how many offenses you have had. Depending on state requirements and the sentencing judge's decision, a DUI class may be a one-day seminar, could require weekly or monthly meetings. DUI court requires that you attend and pass the alcohol class at a court-approved agency.

On top of the fines and expenses for an ignition interlock device, you are usually expected to pay for the DUI class, which can be expensive because of the extent of material covered and length of the class.
