You can start your classes right away if you choose to. However, your DWI Assessment is valid for six months starting from the date that you were assessed. This means that if you do not begin your classes within six months of the assessment date, the assessment will expire and you will have to go through the entire assessment process again.
ADETS stands for Alcohol Drug Education Traffic School and is one of the services that Absolute Advocacy provide. The ADETS program is 16 hours that is completed over four days (Monday – Thursday) and is based on the Prime For Life curriculum.
The e508 form is an electronic verification that is sent to the North Carolina DMV that certifies that an individual has successfully met North Carolina’s DWI requirements. You will need to complete a substance use assessment and treatment prior to the e508 being submitted to the North Carolina DMV.
Even though you do not live North Carolina you can still meet the North Carolina DMV requirements in the state that you currently reside. That process is called an “Out of State Review” and is one of the services that Absolute Advocacy specializes in. You will still need to do an assessment and classes otherwise North Carolina will suspend your driving privilege.
