DUI Schools


If you have been convicted of a DUI, it may be tempting to sign up for some kind of alcohol education program or DUI school. While certain states may reduce your charges upon successful completion of DUI School, it’s not always the case. In fact, rehabilitation may only be a small part of your sentence.

Even if this is your first DUI conviction, you could still lose your driver’s license and be ordered to serve jail time. So it’s essential that you know your state’s DUI laws before you decide to enter any educational program or DUI School.

The first factor to keep in mind is cost. Depending on the state, a DUI school can be priced at several thousand dollars or more. In addition, these charges do not include court fees.

Furthermore, enrolling in DUI classes does not guarantee that you’ll keep your license. You could be facing hefty reinstatement fees for your driving privileges alone. So consider how a DUI school could fit in when you think about all of the other necessary investments.

Not only is cost a consideration, but time should also be something to think about as well. Some DUI classes last only a few days. However, other programs may take up several weekends. Certain states might offer online courses, but most programs will expect you to attend in person.

Another important matter is commitment. Although you might be forced to spend quite a bit of money on admission, that doesn’t mean you will automatically receive high marks. If the instructor doesn’t feel that the course has made an impact on you, then you might not receive a certificate of completion. If that's the case, the DUI educational program you elected to take likely will have no bearing on your sentence.
