Drinking Driver Education Program

This class is intended to reduce the occurrence of driving while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs and to encourage understanding and acceptance of the need to change this behavior in persons who have been arrested for OWI. Classes are available at IWCC in Council Bluffs, Atlantic and Clarinda.

If you are under 18 years of age, please contact the Iowa Department of Education (515) 281-5251 for direction on how to proceed. 

Attendance

Students may start the program only on the assigned date. Mandatory attendance is required and tardiness is unacceptable. Students arriving after the class start time will not be admitted to class and will need to enroll, pay and begin the class again.

Anyone who cannot attend on the assigned dates must call 24 hours before the class starts to be rescheduled without losing their enrollment fee.

Sobriety

Do not consume any alcohol on class days. If alcohol is consumed, it will result in dismissal from the class. The student will have to enroll, pay and begin the class again.

Successful Completion of the Course

For successful completion, each student must fulfill the following requirements:

  • No tardiness.
  • Attend all of the sessions in sequence.
  • Complete all in-class activities and participate in class discussion.

Upon Completion of the Course

You will receive a certificate for your records. We will transmit your completion to the DOT in Des Moines electronically. We usually do this the first workday after the class. Results from Clarinda and Atlantic typically take several days longer. DOT records are updated immediately. A $10 fee will be charged for replacement certificates. 

Registration

Preregistration is required. Payment for the class is required at time of registration. To cancel or reschedule, you must contact our office 24 hours before the class starts. 

If you cancel your registration 24 hours prior to the start of class, you'll receive a 100% refund. If you do not cancel at least 24 hours in advance, you will still be responsible for the amount owed.

Cost $180
