I got a dwi and have my first alcohol test with my probation officer on 12/11. I am wondering how long after drinking it will detect alcohol in my system. I know when I was going to alcohol classes they tested for 1 week and 1 month. Just wondering what probation tests are like.
It sounds like a condition of probation is that you abstain from alcohol. Therefore, you should not be drinking at all. If you get caught with alcohol in your system, you will be violated.
Alcohol can stay in your urine for about 80 hours. It can stay in your hair follicles for about three months. Your best option is to comply with the conditions of probation and abstain.

3-8 days, depending on the test they use. 3 days if they use the standard test. There's a more expensive test that has been introduced and which is used occasionally.
This information should have been part of tne alcohol education classes. If you google this question, you will find a variety of answers - just like I did. I agree with the previous two answers. The test that will detect it after 80 hours is apparently more expensive than tne others to be sure, you should count oo. 80 hours. That said, the best choice is to abstain. Whether you have an adfiction or not, it appears that you have an alcohol related offense. If you are not able to abstain at least temporarily while you are on probation, it raises the question: Do you need treatment for alcohol addiction? If the answer is yes, then you should seek treatment.
