I Education consists of 12 hours of DUI education over a minimum 3-day
period, not more than 4 hours can be conducted in one calendar day.

appropriate for someone who has had more than one impaired driving

What is Level II Education?
II Education consists of 24 hours of DUI education over 12 weeks.
Typically conducted in a group setting, class size is limited to not
more than 12 regularly attending. Level II Education can be recommended
by itself or may be followed by Level II Therapy.
What is Level II Therapy? When
Level II Therapy is required it follows Level II Education and can
range in length from 5 to 10 months depending on the track assigned.
Track assignment depends on whether a person has prior impaired driving
offenses, their BAC (or refusal to take a test) and other clinical
indicators. These track recommendations are made by the alcohol/drug
evaluator (probation) or in the absence of an evaluation, the DUI
licensed treatment agency. The following are the Level II therapy track guidelines: For impaired driving offenses on or after 01/01/14:
Track A 42 hours over 21 weeks, usually for a first time offender with a BAC below .15;
Track B 52 hours over 26 weeks, usually for a first time offender with a BAC of .15 or above or refusal;
Track C 68 hours over 34 weeks, usually for someone with a prior DWAI/DUI, and a BAC below .15;
Track D 86 hours over 43 weeks, usually for someone with a prior DWAI/DUI, and a BAC of .15 or above or refusal.
PLUS 4 Felony DUI charge for offenders who receive their 4th (or higher) DUI charge in a lifetime; or with their 3rd DUI (under special circumstances)
These treatment standards are being developed to meet the unique needs of the multiple DUI offender.
