CALL US TODAY at 918.960.3434
We can provide general information about DUI/DWI/APC assessments over the phone as well as schedule your appointments for assessments and various classes you may have to take as OK DPS requirements for license reinstatement. You can see all of the services we offer here. When you call for information and or to schedule a DUI/DWI/APC assessment, the process will be quicker if you have the following information ready:
- Drivers License Number
- Date of Birth
- Arrest date, city, type of offense
- Attorney name
- Documentation of Blood Alcohol Content (BAC). This
can be found on your yellow ticket or arrest report.
Shortly after your arrest, you should receive a letter from the Department of Public Safety that will include:
- Amount of reinstatement fee
- Your license reinstatement eligibility date
- Instructions to obtain an alcohol/drug assessment and
follow the recommendations
The alcohol/drug assessment MUST be performed by a counseling professional CERTIFIED by the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services as an ADSAC(DUI) assessor.
What is involved in an Alcohol/Drug Assessment? You will complete specific assessment tools to assist in determining the most appropriate intervention level. This is a standard series of questions that all clients must take.
This is a personal, confidential appointment. The entire assessment process will last approximately two hours. The State of Oklahoma requires each ADSAC(DUI) assessor to individually assess the client and then determine what level of services or what recommendations are appropriate. We are required to ask you a series of questions in order to make that determination.
At the end of your DUI/DWI/APC assessment, you will be given specific requirements to complete (DUI School, Victimç—´ Impact Panel, treatment, etc.). When you finish the requirements, You will be required to return proof of completion to your original ADSAC(DUI) assessor. At that time, a certificate of completion will be issued to you. This certificate will bear a red stamp indicating the date all OK DPS requirements have been satisfied for license reinstatement. You will submit, in person or by mail, an original of this certificate along with the license reinstatement fee in money order made out to the OK DPS.
ADSAC (Alcohol Drug Substance Abuse Course) is the same as DUI classes. There are two types of ADSAC/DUI classes, a 10 hour class which lasts three sessions, and a 24 hour class which is taken twice a week for six weeks. Which class you should take will be determined by your individual DUI/DWI/APC assessment.
You must wait the license revocation period (usually 6 months) and either mail or take your DUI/DWI/APC assessment certificate (with the red stamp) to the Department of Public Safety. (The license revocation period may increase due to number of alcohol/drug related arrests.)
For an arrest prior to November 1, 2008, the assessment fee is $175. For an arrest after
November 1, 2008, the assessment fee is $160. The fees are mandatory and regulated by
the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.
If your license has not been revoked or suspended, but you do have to appear in court for the violation, you may still need to do a substance abuse evaluation. The fee will be $75. This fee will assess your treatment needs but will not be sufficient for driver’s license reinstatement.
Many of the requirements of the standard recommendations are statutorily required. For example a
defendant receiving a drug and alcohol assessment and following the recommendations is required by
statute. (See Title 47 O.S. § 11-902 (G)) Attending of a Victim Impact Panel is required by statute.
(See Title 47 O.S. § 11-902 (H)) A payment to the Victim Compensation Fund is statutorily required.
(See Title 21 O.S. § 142.18)
