Nine Month First Offender
The Nine Month First Offender Marin County DUI Program is an Education and Group counseling program for the driver ordered by court to attend an extended First Offender Drinking Driver Program. The Education curriculum (6 weeks) includes videos, lectures and group discussions with informational materials on DUI law, court requirements, substance abuse and problem drinking.
