DWI/DUI Frequently Asked Questions

In Texas, DUI and DWI are not the same, though they both involve impaired driving. Here’s the key difference:

  • DUI (Driving Under the Influence): This charge applies specifically to minors (those under the legal drinking age of 21). Texas has a zero-tolerance policy, meaning any detectable amount of alcohol in a minor’s system while driving is illegal.

  • DWI (Driving While Intoxicated): This charge applies to adults aged 21 and over. It involves driving with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher, or being impaired by drugs or a combination of alcohol and drugs.

Additional Considerations:

  • Penalties: DWI charges in Texas generally carry more severe penalties than DUI charges.
  • Terminology: While the legal terms are distinct, many people use “DUI” and “DWI” interchangeably in casual conversation.
In Texas, individuals charged with DUI (Driving Under the Influence), or DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) may be required or have the option to complete an educational program related to alcohol awareness, DWI intervention, or drug education online. The specifics, often depend on the court’s ruling, the specific circumstances of your case, and the type of program you are required to attend.Here are the key points to consider:
  1. Approval: Not all online courses may be recognized by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) or by the court handling your case. It’s crucial to choose a program that is state-approved. The online DWI/DUI class offered by Texas Court Classes is fully certified by TDLR (License #653)
  2. Type of Course: Texas typically requires different types of programs for DUI/DWI offenders, such as:
  • A 12-hour DWI education program for first-time offenders.
  • A 32-hour DWI intervention program for repeat offenders or those with a significant alcohol or drug dependency.
  • A minor in possession (MIP) or alcohol awareness program for underage individuals charged with DUI.
  1. Court Requirements: The court may have specific stipulations regarding the format of the course, especially if the offense involves certain aggravating factors or if the individual has a history of similar offenses.
  2. Completion and Documentation: Successfully completing the course and providing the court or the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) with proper documentation is crucial. Failure to do so may result in additional penalties or the inability to have your driving privileges reinstated.

Texas Court Classes offers a DWI Education (DWIE) class intended for those who have been convicted as first-time offenders of driving while intoxicated (DWI) and who have had their license suspended. 

In many jurisdictions, including Texas, courts may require you to complete a program as part of your sentence or probation requirements. If you’re a first-time offender, a DWIE/DUI class might be necessary to reinstate your license and driving privileges.

Our DWIE class will teach the history of DWI, effects of alcohol and drugs on driving ability, Texas criminal and civil laws around DWIs, resources to assist with getting help, what happens when we drink, and absorption of alcohol and use of a blood alcohol content (BAC) calculator.

The days for the DWIE class are broken down as follows:

  1. Day 1: Introduction, alcohol/drug traffic safety and problems
  2. Day 2: Effects of alcohol/drugs on driving
  3. Day 3: Alcohol/drug abuse and dependence
  4. Day 4: Personal actions to avoid future DWI behavior and evaluation

There are many benefits and advantages in taking a DWI/DUI class online compared to an in-person class.

  • Flexibility: Learn from anywhere, anytime with Zoom-based classes.
  • Inclusivity: Online DWI education expands access, removing the obstacle of getting to a physical classroom.
  • Affordability: Web-based programs often cost less than in-person options, since there’s no need for classroom space and related expenses.
  • Discretion: For those concerned about public settings, online classes offer a private way to complete the program.
  • Personalized Education: Interactive content, quizzes, and videos can provide a tailored learning experience, benefiting diverse learners.
  • Schedule Control: Take classes when it suits your life, fitting education around work and other obligations. This helps ensure you finish the program successfully.
