The Iowa Course for Drinking Drivers

Persons arrested for drinking and driving in Iowa are required to complete a 12-hour Drinking and Driving Course.  This therapeutic educational program was designed by the Prevention Research Institute and is offered throughout the state to all OWI offenders.  The class combines lecture, discussion, assignments and audio visual materials in a positive atmosphere that helps participants to look at their drinking patterns, especially their decision to drink and drive.
