Honolulu, HI asked in DUI / DWI for California

Q: I was approved to take the out of state DUI program but was not given a date the classes had to be completed by.

Obviously the sooner the better but will I be in compliant with my probation as long as the course is completed before my informal probation ends?

A: You must complete the course before your probation ends in order to comply with probation. Typically, the standard order is 30 days from the date of sentencing, but if there are no reviews, you should just complete it as soon as you can. If this is a California DUI, make sure to call DMV in Sacramento to request paperwork because DMV does not approve out of state DUI classes. You may need to request a 3 year California license suspension in lieu of complete the class.
