What is a DUI?

A DUI is a legal charge against an individual operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

What is a DUI Educational Program?

Some individuals charged with a DUI are ordered by the court to attend DUI educational programs, sometimes known as “drunk driving education” or “DUI school.” These programs are actually a blessing as they often reduce or eliminate harsher penalties for drunk driving charges. Individuals who attend and successfully complete a DUI educational program may be less likely to receive court fines, jail time, and a license suspension.

Most states have two types of DUI educational programs: Level I and Level II.  First-time offenders are more likely to be given a Level I program, where the time commitment is shorter. Conversely, Level II programs include mandated therapy with the DUI educational course. The length of a Level II program can vary depending on the severity of the individual’s crime.
