So long as the judge did not order you enroll in the program at sentencing, then it is not mandatory. However, once your 90 day license suspension period is over, it would be a good move to enroll in the Drinking Driver Program. In fact, the DMV may require you to participate in it, regardless of whether the judge ordered it or not.

The best first step is to contact the DUI Attorney who handled your case and inquire into whether enrolling in the program is mandatory.
