I have to attend a DUI class for my drunk driving case and the Las Vegas Justice Court told me I could take an online DUI school if I wished. I found a listing on DUI classes on the Nevada DMV website and 123DUIOnline.com caught my eye. Does the justice court only accept specific online DUI classes, or is any on licensed by the DMV allowed?
No, just get one that works for Nevada.
I am licensed attorney who focuses on Serious DUI Cases such a 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs and DMV hearings. I also have much experience handling car accident cases. Although the information I provide is helpful, it is not legal advice. Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
Usually, the DUI class has to be a state certified class. The ones online may not be certified. And some of these online courses appear suspicious to me. There have been a number that have popped up recently. I would only pay for a course listed on the Nevada DMV website to ensure there is not a suspension for failing to complete this course.
You should DEFINITELY contact the Justice Court and determine if they will accept that particular class form that provider. Most Court have a particular list and if you do not use a provider on that list you will waste the money for the class and also be forced to redo it.
Yes, it matters what class you take. It needs to be one approved by the court your case is in.
