Driving While Intoxicated-DWI
Article 42.12, Section h3 (h), Code of Criminal Procedure requires persons convicted of first offense DWI and receiving probation, to attend and successfully complete an educational program certified by the department of Criminal Justice.
Failure to complete the program within 180 days from the date probation was granted will result in the offender’s license being revoked (unless an extension was granted).
The license cannot be reinstated until the educational program is completed.
The standardized program is 12 hours in length and is designed to:
- Help DWI offenders increase their knowledge about alcohol and drugs as these substances relate to driving skills.
- Identify their own individual drinking/drug use and driving patterns, and to assist them in developing plans which will reduce the probability of future DWI behavior.
Program Course Curriculum
- Alcohol/drugs and traffic safety problems.
- Texas laws relating to DWI.
