You’re probably only looking at this page because your lawyer, parole officer, or a judge told you that you’re required to take a DUI/risk reduction course. We’re here to tell you what that is, what that means, and how to get registered!
The DUI/risk reduction program is mandated for those convicted with driving under the influence (DUI), boating under the influence (BUI), possession of illegal drugs, or underage possession of alcohol while operating a motor vehicle. The fee for the course is $355, which is set and mandated by the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS). This fee can be paid altogether or can be split into 2 payments—100 when you fill out paperwork and take the NEEDS assessment, $255 at the start date of your class. If necessary, payment plans can be set up through Ash or Monica by calling (404) 641-2211.
The DUI/risk reduction program is made up of two different parts: the assessment component and the 20-hour class itself.
Part 1: NEEDS Assessment Component—$100
The first part is the NEEDS assessment. This is different from the state mandated clinical evaluation/Drug and Alcohol evaluation and can only be administered by a certified traffic school. The Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) requires that you complete this component prior to the start of your class. It only takes 20-30 minutes and can be completed at any time in our office. Call us to schedule a time to complete the assessment component of the DUI/risk reduction class!
Part 2: 20-hour Risk Reduction/DUI Class—$255
After taking the NEEDS assessment, you must complete a 20-hour DUI/risk reduction course. The 20-hour course must be taken consecutively.
Call us today or register online to schedule the course! For more information, either call/text us or visit the Department of Driver Services (DDS) website.
