Peveto Law in DWI

DWI Classes – Texas DWI Education Program

Article 42.12, Section 13 (h), Code of Criminal Procedure requires persons convicted of first offense DWI and receiving probation, to attend and successfully complete a DWI educational program. Failure to complete the program within 180 days (unless and extension given) from the date probation was granted will result in the offender’s license being revoked. The standardized program is 12 hours in length and is designed to help DWI offenders increase their knowledge about alcohol and drugs and their effects on driving, 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-at least that is what we are told.
