How is the type of San Bernardino county DUI classes one needs to attend determined – is it based on court orders, specific criteria from the OMV, or other factors?

The type of program one needs to attend is determined by the number of DUIs they have had in the past and the blood alcohol content of their DUI. It is also determined by what is ordered in court or their court disposition. Sometimes these two requirements can differ, other times they are the same. For example, a person may be required to do a three-month class to get back their restricted license. However, if their blood alcohol level is over 0.15, the court will order them to do a six-month class. It’s important to note that even if a person’s blood alcohol content is over a certain limit, the length of the class is not set in stone as it can be negotiated. For example, in the last case where a person was suspended and has to take a three-month class and was over 0.15, a person or their attorney could negotiate with the prosecutor to try to make it a three-month class. Then the person will be able to double-dip the classes for the DMV and the court.

Can you explain how the length of San Bernardino county DUI classes and the number of service hours required are determined for different types of offenders?

In a nutshell, people who get reckless driving charges are required to do the 12-hour class. People who get a DUI with a blood alcohol content between 0.08 and 0.15 will do the three-month class. For those with a DUI with a blood alcohol content between 0.15 and 0.20, they have to do a six-month class. People with a blood alcohol content of 0.20 and up will have to do a nine-month class. Finally, people who have multiple DUIs or a DUI with a prior within 10 years have to do an 18-month program.

What are the total fees for each San Bernardino county DUI classe, and what is the initial enrollment cost? Are there any payment plans available?

DUI programs do have payment plans available. The cost for the DUI program is listed above.

What measures are in place to assess the effectiveness of the San Bernardino county DUI classesin terms of reducing repeat offenses and promoting safe driving habits?

Participants in these programs are subject to educational requirements and are informed by trained counselors. In addition to this, there are also self-help components built into these programs. These programs have been well-studied in reducing recidivism.

What are the attendance requirements for these San Bernardino county DUI classes, and what happens if a participant misses a session or fails to complete the program?

Each participant is required to attend the entire program. There are excuses for absences; however, too many absences can result in removal from the class. If a person was court-ordered to stay in their class and then they got removed due to too many absences, they can face a probation violation. If this happens, they will have to go to court and face a probation violation. Once they address the probation violation and either admit or deny and resolve that issue, the judge will issue another order to return to class. They are expected to finish the class before the end of their probation.

How have these programs adapted to challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic? Are there options for remote participation or altered schedules?

Many of these classes have altered schedules or remote participation options. Originally, when these programs started, they were all in person. However, as the COVID-19 pandemic started, many of these classes began offering telehealth and started to meet in person. They have adapted to the challenges of COVID-19 and have come away with new procedures to benefit the participants.

If a participant needs to move to a different area within San Bernardino County, what is the process for transferring between San Bernardino county DUI classes locations?

If a participant needs to move to a different area within San Bernardino County or even anywhere in California, it is possible; they will have to talk with the program administrator and reach out to the new school they want to transfer to. Many of these classes will recognize each other’s programs because these programs are mandated by the state. If you are in a position where you have to transfer, the best way to do this is to talk with your current administrator and ask for a recommendation from the new school and then call the new school, assuming it is within the area you want to go to. Alternatively, if you’re not able to get a recommendation, then you need to find out the type of program you’re in, for example, either three months, six months, 12 hours, or 18 months, and look it up online for a similar program. Then you need to call the program and find out if they accept transfers. Following after transferring, you will want to check with the courts to see if this is something that is workable.

What is the process for enrolling in San Bernardino county DUI classes and is there a central contact point for inquiries, or should one contact the individual program locations directly?

The process for enrolling in a DUI program involves contacting the school you want to enroll in. Unlike other counties where there is one centralized place and they give you a referral, the process for San Bernardino is a little different. Upon resolving your case at the San Bernardino courthouse, you will be given a piece of paper where you would be directed to certain schools for DUIs. You can pick from these schools and then eventually enroll in them. Once you enroll in these schools, you have to submit your proof of enrollment over to the courthouse by a certain date. Then after you are done with your program, you should also send in a proof of completion. Many of these schools will tell you that they will do it for you. However, it’s always best to keep copies for yourself in case anything gets lost.

How does completion of these DUI programs affect the reissuance of a driver’s license post-suspension, especially for those convicted of multiple DUIs?

Enrollment in these DUI programs can affect the reissuance of a driver’s license post-suspension. This means that you can use enrollment in these programs to get your restricted license. You can either get an ID or Non-ID license by enrolling in these programs and getting an SR22. Whether or not you decide to get a non-ID license or not is completely up to you. This assumes that you have a first DUI and you are not facing a refusal, and you are over 21.

Hand down the best attorney I have ever worked with!!! My friend recommended Hieu because I needed to expunge something I did when I was young and dumb. Hieu is very humble, personable, and made me feel very comfortable. He's surprisingly funny too. Something not all lawyers are / can do. His pricing is very reasonable and he updated me on everything frequently. I highly recommend him!!!!

I had interviewed many attorneys to discuss my very unfortunate situation that was set by someone I knew. Hieu Vu was the most honest, caring, and professional attorney with compassion and empathy I ever interviewed. HE REALLY HAD A HEART. His fees were very reasonable and he will fight for you not just for your dollars but because he cares for his clients... I would strongly recommend him if you feel your life is upside down. Things happen but we learn to become better person.
