DUI Probation Violation in orlando

DUI Probation Requirements in Orlando

You’re on probation for DUI. You know that you going to have to do the statutory mandated things, which are basically

  • 50 hours of community service
  • 10 day impoundment of the vehicle
  • Monthly meeting with your probation officer
  • Victim Awareness Class
  • DUI School

A part of the DUI school is going to be an evaluation to see if you need any treatment. If they say you need treatment, which 9 times out of 10 they do, you’re going to have to do that as well. This will be a condition to your DUI probation.

DUI Probation Violation Consequences

Let’s say you wait until the last minute to get your community service done, and all of the sudden you’re in a accident, or there is a death in your family, you get late off from your job. These things happen, and you can’t see them coming. To the law there are no excuses for not doing what you need to do, because while you’re on probation, if you’re not complying with the instructions any violation can result in a warrant going out for your arrest. Your probation officer can approach the judge and get the warrant put out for you or your probation officer can make an outside arrest when you show up for your meeting.
