Driving Under the Influence Program
On March 6, 2020, the Governor issued Executive Order 2020-215, declaring a state of emergency pursuant to his power under the Kentucky Constitution and KRS Chapter 39A regarding COVID-19, a mild to severe respiratory disease that can result in death.
In recognition of that order and with the number of COVID-19 cases expected to increase, we are taking necessary steps to protect the health of our fellow Kentuckians by engaging in "social distancing" and limiting person-to-person contact in the workplace.
As a result, the DUI Semi-Annual Meeting scheduled for April 30, 2020, is cancelled and will be rescheduled later. A letter will be sent out once a new date is determined.
The PRI Driving Unimpaired 20 Hour New Instructor Certification Training scheduled for May 57, 2020 is canceled.
Kentucky Revised Statute 189A.040(5) requires all DUI services to be received in an alcohol or substance abuse education or treatment program or facility that is licensed, regulated, and monitored by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services. Therefore, Kentucky will not accept online DUI course completions. Access the Provider Directory link in Related Links to identify the licensed, state-certified DUI provider(s) in your county.
The Driving Under the Influence Program is responsible for monitoring and regulating the statewide network of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) programs that are licensed and certified to provide alcohol and other drug assessments, education and treatment services to persons convicted of DUI.
