DUI Schools in California

CALIFORNIA

In California, there are several levels of Alcohol Education Programs that are offered. In order to enroll in one of the programs, one must be referred, either by the court or the DMV.

12-Hour Alcohol School 12-Hour Alcohol School: This is the first level of education that is offered. It is only offered to those convicted of a charge that is less than a DUI, such as a "wet reckless" (also known as an alcohol related reckless driving). BEWARE: completing the 12-hour alcohol program may not satisfy the DMV. That is just one reason why it is critical that you consult with a lawyer in your area that concentrates on DUI defense.

12-Hour Alcohol School 12-Week Alcohol School: This is the standard first-offender alcohol education program. It requires attendance at one three-hour session, for 12 weeks, or approximately 36 hours of coursework. It may be possible to get a restricted driver's license to allow for driving to and from the program.

12-Hour Alcohol School 18-Month Alcohol School: This is the standard program in California for second-offenders. (Note that in California, the washout period for prior convictions is seven years, from offense date to offense date.) The program is divided into several phases, and typically begins with mandatory attendance at weekly sessions, gradually changing to every other week.

12-Hour Alcohol School 30-Month Alcohol School: This is a special program for multiple offenders, offered in very specialized circumstances for certain multiple offenders.
