9-Month First Offender DUI Program (AB1353)
About the 9-Month DUI Program
The 9-Month DUI program, or the AB1353 program, is generally mandated for first-time DUI offenders with high blood alcohol levels and/or other extenuating circumstances. A judge may order other requirements in addition to the AB1353 on a case-by-case basis.
The Twin Palms AB1353 program is a 9-month DUI program that begins with an informative orientation and registration interview. Like the other longer-term programs, this program consists of a series of face-to-face interviews, six education classes, 23 group sessions, and self-help group meetings. You’ll find Twin Palms to be a non-judgmental, professional, and supportive environment that will help you through the program with transparency and respect.
Remote telehealth services and classes via Zoom are being offered.
AB1353 9-Month DUI Program Enrollment Information
To begin your enrollment, you will need a referral from the Los Angeles County DUIP, a Public Driving Record form indicating the requirement for an AB1353 program from the California DMV or a referral from the court. Upon registration and payment of the enrollment fee, you’ll need to begin the program within 21 days. You can visit us and enroll in person in El Monte, La Puente, or Pomona. When your enrollment is completed, we will electronically provide your registration information to the DMV. Once you choose a location, you must remain at that location for the duration of your program.
To make your program completion as convenient as possible and help ensure success, Twin Palms offers DUI program activities through the week during the day and in the evening. We also hold sessions on Saturdays. You can choose the sessions that best fit your schedule.
