MIP Classes Online

Alcohol Awareness Programs, also known as MIP classes, are for Minor in Possession and other Texas alcohol related offenses. DADAP may be an ONLINE substitute for traditional in-person MIP classes.

Our 100% online Drug and Alcohol Driving Awareness Program has been developed for the use of Texas courts when referring offenders to remedial training for certain drug and alcohol related offenses such as Minor in Possession charges.

You can sign up below if a Texas judge or court has given you permission to attend DADAP online to satisfy your requirement for MIP class attendance.

DADAP Online may apply for the following applications:

  • Court Ordered – Alcohol / drug related offenses
  • Insurance Discount – Save money
  • Fleet Training – General safety awareness program

DADAP has been developed to teach students exactly why drinking / using drugs and driving is always a dangerous and often a deadly decision. DADAP covers relevant Texas alcohol laws and the penalties associated with these laws. Students are taught that they have three Attitude States – the Parent Attitude State, the Adult Attitude State, and the Child Attitude State – and one or more of these states can be in control of our behavior at any given time. By remaining in the Adult Attitude State, they can make responsible decisions.

Our program is the first online course of its kind. Courts and judges requiring the completion of Alcohol Awareness Programs / MIP classes for alcohol and drug offenses may accept a completion certificate from an online DADAP, but each case and situation is unique, so we recommend that you verify eligibility and acceptance prior to enrolling on our site.

Which Texas laws govern attendance of MIP classes?

Texas' minor in possession laws are related in Chapter 106 of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code. These laws address, among other things, individuals under the age of 21 who have possessed or had contact with an alcoholic beverage. Section 106.01 and other applicable sections of Texas law state the following regarding minors in possession:

106.01(a) A minor commits an offense if the minor purchases an alcoholic beverage. A minor does not commit an offense if the minor purchases an alcoholic beverage under the immediate supervision of a commissioned peace officer engaged in enforcing the provisions of this code.

106.01(b) An offense under this section is punishable as provided by Section 106.071.

106.025(a) A minor commits an offense if, with specific intent to commit an offense under Section 106.02 of this code, the minor does an act amounting to more than mere preparation that tends but fails to effect the commission of the offense intended.

106.025(b) An offense under this section is punishable as provided by Section 106.071.

The information given above defines a minor in possession offense as any type of control by a minor over an alcoholic beverage unless the minor: 1) has had contact with alcohol as part of his or job (and the employer is allowed to sell alcohol); 2) has had contact with alcohol while in the presence of his or her parent or legal guardian with their permission; or 3) has had contact with alcohol while assisting a commissioned peace officer in the enforcement of the law. MIP classes are sometimes ordered for offenders who are convicted under any of the sections shown above.

Note: DADAP is not a defensive driving course and cannot be used to dismiss a Texas traffic ticket. Instead, you must take a ticket dismissal course (a/k/a driving safety course).
