The curriculum that is used addresses the education/rehabilitation component of the multi-faceted effort to cope with DWI. Persons convicted of DWI, as do most of the general population, usually have little knowledge concerning the amount of alcohol or other drugs necessary to impair them; the types of impairment involved; the laws concerning DWI; means of coping with alcohol or drugged driving situations; and other important areas. The guide, which was originally prepared with funding from the Texas Department of Transportation, is designed to prepare instructors to present factual information to DWI offenders.

This acquisition of such information will enable DWI offenders to have a sound knowledge base upon which to make future decisions concerning their drinking/driving behavior. DWI education programs will not however, produce an immunization against future drinking or drug use behavior. The program can be part of an overall traffic safety effort by increasing the knowledge of all participants and changing behavior of those who choose to use this knowledge. A part of the coordinated effort, the DWI Education Program in Texas has been a very valuable component.
The basic objective of any education program is to change the behavior of its participants

As a 30-year educator, I had the opportunity to recommend over 200 students to Benavides Driving school during my career. The school has a long history of excellence and integrity. As a parent, I had no doubt that my 2 kids were in for an awesome experience. Both are in college now, and are both excellent drivers. I am very grateful to the staff. In my opinion as an educator and a parent, Benavides Driving School has set the standard by which all driving schools should be evaluated…they are still the best around.
