Licensed DUI Programs in Florida
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles' (DHSMV) Bureau of Motorist Compliance provides administrative oversight for licensed Driving Under the Influence (DUI) programs statewide. Chapter 15A-10, F.A.C., provides the DHSMV with the authority to certify instructors, investigate complaints, and evaluate effectiveness of the programs.
DUI programs are non-profit organizations required to provide drug and alcohol education to DUI offenders to satisfy judicial and driver licensing requirements. There are two types of educational courses offered: Level I for first-time offenders and Level II for persons with multiple offenses.
The Level I course involves a minimum of 12 hours of classroom instruction incorporating informative and interactive educational techniques.
The Level II course involves a minimum of 21 hours of classroom time using primarily interactive educational techniques in a group setting. The average class size may not exceed 15 students for Level II. This course focuses on addressing the problems of the repeat offender and treatment readiness, as the majority of students are referred to treatment. Treatment from a Department of Children and Families (DCF)-licensed treatment provider is often used in conjunction with the Level II DUI class.
