Q: I was convicted of a dui back in 2012 and it's my first conviction in fl how do I do the dui class if I live in nv
I have completed mental health program in nv can fl accept it as I did a substance abuse treatment
A: You should contact the Bureau of Administrative Review, in Florida, to determine if your NV class will meet the requirements of Florida’s DUI level 1 school. Unless you live or work in a Florida County, you are prohibited from taking the FL DUI level 1 class. Thus, out of State classes should be recognized. However, you want to be sure, before spending money, your class is accepted.
You need to contact a DUI program in Florida and request a transfer of DUI school supervision/treatment to your home state. The Florida school will advise you which school and treatment provider in your area will satisfy Florida's requirements, will communicate with the NV program, and will notify FLHSMV when you've completed it. That way the completion will be properly noted on your Florida driving record (yes, you have one even if you aren't a Florida licensee). All this is important because Florida will hold up your NV driver license unless you complete school and they record that completion.
The Bureau of Administrative Reviews has no involvement in this process, so don't waste your time contacting them. They only issue hardship permits and other suspension issues.
