Driving Under the Influence Services

In 2004, more restrictive Driving Under the Influence (DUI) legislation became effective that requires all DUI offenders to receive a clinical assessment to determine necessity of treatment and a court reporting network assessment (CRN). The Office of the DUI Coordinator (ODC) is currently located at the Criminal Justice Center. After the pre-sentence hearing, all state-required services (the CRN evaluation, assessment for drug and alcohol treatment services and Alcohol Highway Safety School classes) are assigned to one of eight approved DUI Service Providers throughout the city according to geographic location and/or language considerations. The Office of the DUI Coordinator processes only conviction status cases of Philadelphia residents with DUI offenses arrested in Philadelphia. Once the participant has met all criteria, the Clerk of Courts issues a court order compliance form to PennDOT to process the restoration of driving privilege request.
