DWI Education Classes – First Offense
The Texas Code of Criminal Procedure requires persons (adults and minors) convicted of first offense DWI and receiving probation, to attend and successfully complete an educational program certified by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.
There are NO online DWI Education Classes certified or authorized by the State of Texas.
The standardized DWI Education Program (often referred to by students as the DWI Class) is 12 hours in length and is designed to help DWI offenders increase their knowledge about alcohol and drugs as these substances relate to driving skills, to identify their own individual drinking/drug use and driving patterns, and to assist them in developing plans which will reduce the probability of future DWI behavior.
Specific course topics include alcohol/drugs and traffic safety problems, Texas laws relating to DWI, effects of alcohol/drugs on humans, alcohol/drugs and driving task abilities, chemical dependency, symptoms of dependency, sources of assistance, costs of DWI, and decision-making.
The DWI Class consists of a 12-hour program and is presented in three 4-hour sessions over 3 separate days.
Americas Empowerment Institute’s DWI Education Program was founded to help first time offenders. Our goal was to help educate people who have received an alcohol-related citation. The first program offered attracted only Houstonians. Over the years demand grew and we branched out to other nearby cities and counties. We have been offering the DWI Education Program for first time offenders. Our Lead Instructor, Ms. Cynthia Patterson earned her DWI Education Instructor certification from The Texas Department of State Health Services. Ms. Patterson is a Minister of God and is also certified and has worked as a driving instructor. Ms. Patterson enjoys teaching and looks forward to providing you with a high-quality learning experience which will help you gain the knowledge to make wise decisions in your future where alcohol is involved.
