Alcohol education programs (AEP) may be required for drivers who are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The goal of an alcohol education program is to provide rehabilitation for drivers who have been convicted for DUI. Drivers are commonly required to take an alcohol education program if they are referred by the District Court Judge, referred by the Administrative Law Judge during an administrative license revocation hearing or if they are requesting to have their license reinstated after their license was revoked for a DUI conviction.
Alcohol education programs will provide information to the driver to educate them on their level of alcohol dependence. Drivers who are identified as "alcohol abusers" or dependent on alcohol may, in some states, have to complete a more comprehensive and extended alcohol education program. Common topics covered in alcohol education programs include:
Drivers who refuse to complete their alcohol education program may have their license suspended and must surrender their drivers license. Fees for alcohol education courses may vary and are generally paid directly to the alcohol education provider. Unfortunately, there is generally an additional charge to request a new driver's license.
