DUI School | DUI Education Programs To Lower PenaltiesThe state of Florida offers many DUI-focused educational programs, often called “DUI school” to help first-time DUI offenders. Some offenses may also require that you attend a DUI program as part of your court-mandated penalties.
Should I Go To DUI School?
The lawyers at Canan Law can review your DUI case during a free consultation and strategize if a DUI program is right for you. In most cases, it can be a good idea to help lower fines, charges and remove offenses from your record.
What Does DUI School Require?
Most courses will require elements of the following:
- You live locally and can attend in-person class sessions
- Twelve or more hours of educational classes taught by an instructor
- A psychosocial evaluation interview
- A 1-2 hour enrollment process and $200-$500 course fee
- Acquiring a hardship license if your license is revoked
What Do I Get From DUI School?
Attending the courses can fulfill your statutory requirements for a first offense DUI. It can also help reduce fines and charges, which is helpful for your driving and criminal records going forward. If your blood alcohol levels were high, or you endangered other lives while driving under the influence, you may be required to complete a 21-hour course with more significant costs.
