Program Description

The DWLS Program is a one-day course designed to target drivers identified as having received a driving while license suspended charge.

This program provides participants with information and tools to help them understand the process through which a driver license is suspended, how to resolve outstanding court and state department responsibilities, and eligibility requirements for license reinstatement. The course will also address ways to prevent further infractions or penalties. Further discussion will help participants explore how attitude and behavior contribute positively or negatively to goal achievement. A local lawyer also joins the last half hour of the class to answer questions from participants. Motivation for positive change will be emphasized.
