What You Should Know
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, DUI classes are offered by nonprofit groups to “provide education, a psychosocial evaluation and treatment referral services” to offenders. You can register for classes online, and locations for classes are available throughout the state. There are two levels of classes for people convicted of DUI: Level I and Level II. If you are a first-time offender, you will take Level I classes for a minimum of 12 hours. After your first offense, you will take Level II classes for a minimum of 21 classroom hours. Level II classes are done in a group setting. Talk to your attorney for more information and to find out if you will likely need to take a class.
