DUI Risk Education

What is the DUI Risk Education Program?

Illinois law requires completion of a risk education course by DUI ( driving under the influence) offenders who's substance use has been assessed into the minimum to significant risk classification.

This 10 hour course will give you an opportunity to learn about the risks and consequences of alcohol and other drug use and abuse. You will also look at how your own use of alcohol or other drugs affects your physical health, driving, family and community.

This course is based on the belief that people have the power to change their behavior if they have the motivation and tools to do so. You will be provided with information and support to help develop a Personal Change Plan to avoid any future problems with alcohol, other drugs, and impaired driving.

Upon completion of your 10 hours of risk education you will be awarded a certificate of completion from the Drivers Risk Education Course.

All of our services are offered in both English and Spanish. All services are provided in a caring, supportive, culturally competent environment and are completely confidential.

Our DUI Risk Education classes are held in four session intervals over a two weeks. Mondays and Wednesdays. Each class is 2.5 hours long and are held in the mornings and in the evenings for those who work during the day. Each session must be completed in order and if it is absolutely necessary that you miss you must wait until the next session date to make up the class that you missed.
