One of the main punishments that comes with one or multiple DWI offenses is attending a mandatory DWI intervention program. The Texas Department of Licensing and Registration chose to create these classes to encourage repeat offenders to learn more about the negative side effects alcohol can have on motorists and educate them on the state’s traffic laws. The type of class you take and the length of it is dependent on how many offenses you have.
While these classes are out the result of good intentions, they can still serve as an inconvenience for those trying to readjust their lives after a major accident. Those facing potential DWI charges should learn about the court’s regulations on these classes and if it is possible not to include them in the conviction.
