Prices Reduced for California Online DUI Classes by Tom Wilson Counseling Center

Prices Reduced for California Online DUI Classes as Well as Longer Online DUI Classes for Other States

At Tom Wilson Counseling Center, we are constantly looking for new ways to improve our customer value and satisfaction. This includes periodically reviewing our expenses and price lists.

I am pleased to share that we have decided to reduce our price for online DUI classes that are 32 hours in length or longer. As of 4/1/2014, the price will drop from $18.75 per class hour to $15.00 per hour. For example, our old price for a 32 hour online AB541 DUI class for non- residents of California was $600.00, and the new price will be $480.00. We will continue to offer no-interest payment plans. We believe that this new price not only gives customers a great value, but it also reflects our commitment to customer satisfaction.

Customers who require a 32 hour class for other states will experience the same cost saving,
