Virginia DUI Conviction Requires Safety Program
If you are convicted of DUI in Virginia, you must report to an Alcohol Safety Action Program (ASAP) in your area for screening and probationary oversight to have your license reinstated. This process will determine the intervention services that are most appropriate. At your own expense, you may be assigned to an education program and/or referred to treatment. You will spend a minimum of 20 hours during a 10-week period in ASAP classes if you are assigned to education. Those convicted of a first offense will be on probation for a year. For a second or subsequent offense, three years probation is required. If ignition interlock is required, Virginia ASAP will monitor your compliance with the court’s requirements. Contact our Virginia DUI lawyers if you’ve been arrested for Richmond DUI, Chesterfield DUI, Hanover DUI, or Henrico DUI offenses.
