Find a DUI School

If you’ve been cited for drinking and driving, you’ll be forced to attend an authorized Florida DUI program licensed and regulated by the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
If this is your first conviction:

You must complete DUI school before hardship reinstatement (having your license returned with limited driving privileges such as for use to/from work)

If you plan to wait out your revocation period, you’ll still need to show proof of DUI school enrollment or completion to become re-licensed. 

DUI Programs Description

DUI programs are non-profit organizations required to provide drug and alcohol education to DUI offenders to satisfy judicial and driver licensing requirements. The classes are taught by certified DUI instructors who meet the requirements of the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

You must register for the DUI Program in the county where you live, work, or attend school unless you’ve been granted an exception. The DUI courses require in-person attendance. There are no online classes.

Two Levels of DUI Courses

Your conviction determines which course you need to take:

Level I Course

For first-time offenders. Requires a minimum of 12 hours of classroom instruction incorporating informative and interactive educational techniques. Participants must also pass a 1-hour evaluation by a Certified DUI Evaluator. Both the class and evaluation portion are available in English and Spanish.

The course can be divided into:
o   Saturday and Sunday (6 hours per day)
o   3 week nights (4 hours per day)

Upon registering for a program, you’ll receive a Proof of Enrollment via email. You can use this Proof of Enrollment to apply for a hardship license.

Level II Course

For persons with more than one DUI arrest. Requires a minimum of 21 hours of classroom time using primarily interactive educational techniques in a group setting. Participants must also pass a psychosocial, substance abuse evaluation conducted by a Certified DUI Evaluator. This course addresses the problems of the repeat offender and treatment readiness, as the majority of students are also referred to treatment.
