A San Diego DUI Program has classes by one of just three licensed providers in San Diego County authorized by both the San Diego DUI Court Probation and California DMV. These three programs are the only programs presently online that both court and DMV accepts:
Metropolitan Area Advisory Committee MAAC
1355 Third Avenue
Chula Vista, CA 91911
If your San Diego DUI criminal defense attorney obtains an order by the Court to do the DUI classes or program out of state, you must also request San Diego Court’s Assessment Unit (when you speak with SAAU or the Substance Alcohol Assessment Unit) that you be directed to do your DUI program or classes at the specific program.
Generally, if you know you have to do a San Diego DUI alcohol program, contact the program early to request an appointment for an orientation, which is required prior to enrollment.
If convicted or suspended, California DMV typically requires proof of completion of the San Diego DUI program, payment of fees and filing of an SR-22.
