DUI School Requirements

After being convicted of a DUI offense, it is very probable that your license will be suspended for a period of time. If you complete DUI school, however, there is a chance that you can be eligible for a hardship, or provisional, license. This means that you would be extended limited driving privileges in the time of your license suspension. Depending on the type of DUI charge, different regulations apply.

  • First Time DUI Conviction
    • To be eligible for a hardship license, a driver must complete DUI school
    • For those who wait for the suspension period to expire, they will need proof of the completion of DUI school to have their license reinstated
    • If a driver fails to complete DUI school before the suspension period is over, however, they will have to wait until they complete it to reinstate their license
  • Second DUI Conviction (Within 5 years)
    • The driver must complete DUI school
  • Third DUI Conviction (Within 10 years)
    • The driver must complete DUI school
  • DUI Manslaughter (With no prior DUI convictions)
    • The driver must complete DUI school to be eligible for a hardship license
  • Reckless Driving
    • If the driver was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol while charged of reckless driving, they may be ordered to complete DUI school
    • If the driver fails to complete the course before their license suspension period is over, they will have to complete DUI school and pass the driver's license exam in order to have their license reinstated
