Are you worried about getting to and from your DUI classes? Driving while intoxicated or DWI is a serious matter that requires consequences that should be accepted by the offender. Unfortunately, many offenders try to skip out on these consequences because they are afraid of how hard their life will become if they have an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicle or if they get license plate impounds or suspensions. However, there are ways for people that need DUI classes to not only get to them but also get home afterward without having to worry about getting pulled over by police officers looking for impaired drivers. Ways people that need DUI classes to get to and from classes include:
Public transit buses and trains usually stop at or near DUI classes in order for people that need to go there to reach them. Of course, this means that a sober friend or family member must drive the person that needs DUI classes to the location where the class is held. If you live within walking distance or biking distance of your class, then you can just walk there yourself if you are allowed by law.
Private transport services
Many companies offer services to people that need DUI classes so they don’t have to worry about driving while intoxicated. These private transportation services will not only take you there but also pick you up afterwards so long as it is okay with your schedule and legal requirements. Private transportation services will simply send an employee to meet at your home so you and the other people that need DUI classes can be driven to and from class.
Carpooling with family or friends
People that need DUI classes should avoid drinking any alcohol whatsoever before they drive to and from their classes. Of course, this means that someone will have to pick them up and drop them off every day if necessary. Your spouse, children, siblings, parents, cousins, aunts and uncles can all help you out by picking you up and dropping you off for your charges without thinking it is too much of a hassle. Visit your family or friends that can give you a ride to and from the DUI classes every day.
Renting a car
Some people that need DUI classes cannot be picked up or dropped off by anyone. For these people, it is necessary to spend the money on renting a car for the rest of their time before they are allowed to drive themselves again. Renting cars can get expensive but if someone can split it with you then it might not be as much as you think. Rental cars will always come equipped with GPS devices just in case you plan to stop and drink after class and don’t want to risk getting caught without having a backup form of transportation there should something go wrong. Of course, this also means that someone else has to rent the rental car and return it so make sure your company knows this.
Using rideshare apps
App companies like Uber and Lyft offer services that can take people that need DUI classes to class. These companies also offer services where drivers can pick up people that need to be dropped off at their homes afterward so long as the driver agrees with the schedule beforehand. This ensures those people do not have to worry about being irresponsible by driving after drinking alcohol or taking drugs as they might have done before they were required to start going through DUI classes. Once again, someone else will have to step in and allow one of these ride-sharing drivers into your home if you plan on using this method of transportation. Make sure whoever does this is okay with getting paid a little bit for letting a stranger into their house.
Are there rehabs that organize transport for people that need to go to DUI classes?
Yes, there are rehabs out there that will provide transportation for people that need to go to DUI classes in order to keep them from driving when they might be under the influence. These rehabs also offer other services like providing sober living houses for people that may end up relapsing after they complete their court orders and leave their assigned rehabilitation centers. If you plan on leaving your rehabilitation center at any point in time then make sure you look into what transportation options are available for you before you sign yourself out against medical advice or run away without allowing anyone knows where you have gone.
If possible, try not to use public forms of transportation as can lead to “temptations” you might not have had before if you were surrounded by peers that might trigger a relapse. When it comes to people that need DUI classes, there are many different ways to go about getting there and back again without the use of a vehicle. Whether you choose to ride with family or friends, rent a car for your time left in court-ordered rehabilitation or simply hire a driver from Uber or Lyft, one thing is certain: these private transportation services can take care of all of this for you so long as they know where you will be at all times without exception.
