DUI Program Lengths

After a person has been convicted of driving under the influence (DUI), they will often be required to complete a DUI program in order for the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to reinstate their ability to operate a motor vehicle. Many DUI convictions will mandate that a driver complete a DUI program as part of the criminal court's penalties as well.

How long will I have to attend a DUI program?

The length of time that a person is required to attend a DUI program will depend on the details of their case, blood alcohol content (BAC) level, and whether or not they have any prior DUI convictions.

Some program lengths include:

  • 12 hour course over 6 weeks for first time offenders under the age of 18, and those who have been convicted of their first wet reckless charge
  • 3 month program for a first time DUI offense with a BAC between .08 and .14, with no aggravating details in the case
  • 6 month program attended once a week for 2 hours for those with a first time DUI and a BAC of .15 to .19
  • 60 hour course over the course of 9 months for those convicted of a DUI with BAC over .20 or with aggravating factors involved

Individuals who have been convicted of their second or subsequent DUI will likely have to attend an 18 month program. These DUI programs are merely guidelines and the actual sentencing may vary with each case. A DUI attorney may be able to work with prosecution to help reduce the length and severity of charges, especially for those who were convicted of a first-time DUI offense. At the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry, Inc., our legal team works to protect clients' freedoms, futures, and driving privileges.
