Service Description

The DWI classes will be held from 6 pm - 10 pm for three consecutive days. Texas state law requires that individuals convicted of a first offense DWI must complete a certified DWI education program. Those that fail to successfully complete the program will have their license revoked. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), the state of Texas led the nation in drunk driving deaths in the year 2011 with more than 1,200 fatalities. The Texas DWI Education Program exists to change that situation and to protect everyone who gets on the road. About the Texas DWI Education Program The first offender DWI education course is designed to help participants become aware of the personal challenges that fuel their chemical dependency and begin to practice alternative behaviors that are conducive to a healthy lifestyle. All classroom instructors are Texas State Certified and are knowledgeable about the current state laws and statistics. - Participants in the program will focus on a variety of issues, including: - Learning about how drug and alcohol usage affect driving skills - Identifying individual drinking and/or drug use and driving patterns - Reducing the probability of future DWI behavior The Texas DWI Education Program for first offenders is a four hour class over the course of three days with a cost of $100 per participant. “State law requires individuals convicted of a first offense DWI to complete a certified DWI education program or face license revocation. Individuals convicted of subsequent offenses are mandated to a 32-hour intervention program designed to prevent further substance abuse related problems and encourage entry into treatment where indicated. Again, attendance is enforced through license revocation. Drivers convicted of a drug offense receive an automatic six-month license suspension, and reinstatement is dependent on completing a course on the dangers of drug abuse. Minors convicted of first or subsequent offenses for the purchase, possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages is required to attend an alcohol awareness course or face a six-month license suspension.” (Toward a Drug-Free Texas: A Coordinated Demand Reduction Strategy: Drug Demand Reduction Advisory Committee)”
