Level II education and treatment programs are a set of guidelines detailing what length and type of education and treatment you must complete following an alcohol or drug traffic violation. The difference between Level I and Level II is that Level I education is for minor drivers only who had their licenses suspended for their first alcohol or drug violation. Level II courses are for all other alcohol or drug violations and for some extreme cases with minors.
Level II education and treatment programs are broken into four groups: tracks A through D. Each based on the level of severity of the violation. Level II programs are assessed for DUIs, DWAIs, those who have been convicted of two alcohol violations within five years, three alcohol violations over a lifetime, revoked for having a BAC greater than .15 or more, revoked for having multiple violations of .08 or more, or because of a refusal to take an alcohol or drugs test. Depending on the specific situation, an offender will fall onto either track A, B, C, or D.
Level II Track A is for first-time violators with a BAC under .15. Track A consists of five months (or 21 weeks) of treatment, for a total of 42 hours. Track A also has a 24 hour, 12-week education program requirement, having a total of 66 hours of programs over a period of eight months.
Level II Track B is for first-time violators with either a BAC greater than .15 or for refusing to take an alcohol or drug test. Track B consists of six months (or 26 weeks) of treatment, for a total of 52 hours. Track B also has a 24 hour, 12-week education program requirement, having a total of 76 hours of programs over a period of nine months.
Level II Track C is for repeat offenders with a BAC under .15. Track C consists of eight months (or 34 weeks) of treatment, for a total of 68 hours. Track C also has a 24 hour, 12-week education program requirement, having a total of 92 hours of programs over a period of 11 months.
Level II Track D is for repeat offenders with either a BAC greater than .15 or for refusals to take an alcohol or drug test. Track D consists of 10 months (or 43 weeks) of treatment, for a total of 86 hours. Track D also has a 24 hour, 12-week education program requirement, having a total of 110 hours of programs over a period of 13 months.
In some cases, enrollment is available for Level II offenders who are currently enrolled in Level II programs and are eligible for reinstatement but have not yet completed their Level II course. Enrollment, or an “Affidavit of Enrollment”, is a document completed by an OBH certified treatment agency allowing the driver who is required to complete Level II courses to complete their Level II program after and as a condition of their reinstatement.
