In California, every person convicted of a first offense DUI is required to complete an approved drinking driver program. For second and subsequent convictions, completion of an 18 or 30-month program is required. The court will order completion of the program as a condition of probation or parole.
The program must be one that is approved by the court, and the court will accomodate you in terms of where you take the program. However, the program is not free, and you should be prepared to pay an initiation fee as well as additional fees as the program progresses.
Finally, the DMV will allow a temporary license to include, along with driving to and from work, driving to and from the program. You however must be enrolled in the program to obtain this exception.
A qualified San Francisco DUI attorney can give you information regarding the programs, and the options available to you to complete the program successfully.
