RRP Certification # 10183 DI Certification # D12181 Reviews from past clients: " I chose this class after reading the reviews on this page, sure it was a bit further than my local DUI school but it was worth the drive! Snacks and coffee were provided for us through out the day and on top of that we were served long horn steak house for lunch! Ash is a really cool guy and the instructor David was quick with the jokes. I would recommend this school to anyone who needs to take the class." "Very hospitable and accommodating. They work with your schedule and provide a comfortable and discrete setting for what could otherwise be an unpleasant task." Things happen in life that you never plan for, the DUI was one of the things i never thought it will happen to me, because i am not somebody that drinks but i did one time for social. And i did not know what to expect when the court ask me to do the DUI class, so i started looking for school that is close to my house and also a customer friendly environment, i visited some centers and i made some calls, but none of them gave me good intention and i was searching further and i find 1st Act DUI school and i pick up the phone and called Ash and from our conversation i known that was what i was looking for. Ash is a great friendly guy and everyone working with him and David the instructor is a great guy too, nice class room, some free stuff to keep your mouth busy and also a free lunch to go from Longhorn Steakhouse, i will recommend 1st Act DUI school anytime. "Having to take a defensive driving or DUI class is never something that you want to do! With that being said, it's nice to find a place that makes it less of a hassle and has a clean and welcoming environment. They supplied lunch for both our Saturday and Sunday sessions of DUI school and took the worry out of leaving and being back on time. The staff and instructor were very courteous and sympathetic to the situation at hand. I would highly recommend taking your class at this facility if the need arises!" "I would like to say this has truly been an eye opening experience for me. The staff was very polite and helpful in all aspects of the course. They feed you well physically and mentally. Longhorn lunches, all the snacks, fresh fruit salads were very nice and made the class much more pleasant. I have heard about other dui schools, and dirty they are. This place was super clean.I would highly recommend 1st act to anyone going to attend a dui class." "First, I've read all the reviews about this school and if you do, you also will see that everyone has given it extremely high praise in all respects: amenities, facility, quality of instruction and staff. I agree 100%. It's all because of the extraordinary gentleman who owns and runs it, Ash Hodge. Despite all the rave reviews you really have to meet him to appreciate his compassion, commitment to excellence and follow through on everything he says he will do. It was over two months ago that I took his course and I called him yesterday to ask a question about my recent court experience. Not only did he instantly remember me, but he treated me like a very good old friend and gave me valuable information. Don't even think about going anywhere else. You'll miss the opportunity to know Ash." "'ll admit, when I learned that i had to take a risk reduction class all i could think about was the financial toll it would have on my wallet, and what other ways i could think of to spend 292.00 USD. I was certain that i would enter into an unclean and run down facility where i would be looked upon and treated like some criminal. To my extreme surprise, i found this to be nothing of the sort. From the very second i made the phone call, and through the duration of the course, Ash and David reminded me through their own humility that i was still a human being...i just needed a bit of work. I can't remember a time where I've been treated so much like a person under a circumstance where the encounter itself was due to the high risk choices I've made in life. I didn't want to come here, but now that i have made it through i realized that i truly needed this. i have learned so much. 1 ACT DUI helped me to identify specific traits as well as social and psychological influences that have held me hostage...now I'm on a rescue mission! :) I was largely embarrassed when i got hit with a DUI... but the DUI may have in fact SAVED MY LIFE!" " had a very good experience with 1 Act DUI school. Nobody wants to go to DUI school, but if you have to go, this is a very good choice. Knowledgable, friendly & hospitable. Good people." " Ash was amazing! What a warm and friendly environment that turns a very unpleasant situation into a comfortable experience. It is a shameful and humiliating high risk choice that brings you here but with the welcoming and compassionate attitude that he displays, it makes you feel at ease and appreciative of all he does. He really goes above and beyond! Ash is the epitome of customer service! I would recommend this course to any one that would even think of getting behind the wheel while impaired.... " "This is the best place in Atlanta to take the DUI class. Ash (the owner) is the nicest man ever and goes above and beyond to make sure your experience is as enjoyable as possible. Breakfast and lunch was provided every day as well as snacks and an endless supply of drinks. The office is very clean and neat as well as the bathrooms. I would HIGHLY recommend this school. I don't plan to ever have to take the class again but if I did, it would be here without hesitation. Hands down the best DUI school in town." " Felt like Class for celebrities. The only choice if you're in the ATL and have to take this class!!!!!!!! As a black male I find myself being very critical and suspicious of any places that offer services related to law offenses. So when I saw this school I thought it was too good to be true. Honestly I thought it was a scam. So I called the owner Ash and he was too eager to fit me in to his class telling me how good he treats his students and how much I would like it (again this made me very suspicious). But Ash was there when ever I called him to answer any question I had and was even able to text me while I was at work and couldn't talk about my situation. Figuring it wasn't a scam because he always answered his phone I paid at went. ***Best Choice Ever***!! Not only was the service top notch and the facility extra clean, I actually learned a lot because the instructor was very good at what he does. The Longhorns was tasty and there are always snacks and drinks so you're never bored or hungry. Almost makes you want to get another DUI...just kidding. Great place." "I LIKE THIS DUI SCHOOL.. ITS A CLEAN AND NICE ENVIRONMENT AND YOU REALLY DO GET FREE LONGHORN FOR LUNCH.. THE EMPLOYEES HERE ARE ALSO FRIENDLY" "Ash (the owner) is the man. Super nice, buys everyone lunch. Has a Spanish class too!" "1st Act DUI was an exceptional place to take a DUI Course. The staff was friendly as well as knowledgable. They served us long horn steak house for lunch both Saturday and Sunday. The facilities were very clean and kept. They have snacks and drinks and cater to your needs. I have heard many horror stories about taking the DUI class at other locations and I did my research on the different places, and I decided that 1st Act was where I was going to take it, though I had to drive 20 minutes from my house and I am surprised to say that I am extremely happy with my decision. My suggestion is if you have to take a DUI course for whatever reason that you strongly consider this school!" "Was pleasantly surprised about the very clean, professional and welcoming environment. Exceeded all my expectations and made an unpleasant experience more than just tolerable. Clean facilitates, polite and knowledgeable staff helped you through all aspects of your class." "went to 1 ACT DUI this past weekend, and had about as good of a time as you are going to have at DUI school. The two guys who run it are very nice and make the course as engaging as possible. The set up inside is very nice and clean compared to other schools you could go to. Also, they serve Longhorn for lunch. For DUI school it really makes no sense not to go to this place. I really recommend anyone going through this process to sign up for 1 ACT DUI." "Much nicer than I expected. Ash is friendly and informative, the office is well lit and clean, the free Longhorn lunches were great, and the instructor was easy going. The course is a mandated 20 hours long for about 4 hours of information, so it is tedious, but the content is actually pretty good, and you get plenty of breaks. Short of providing recliners, I can't think of anything that could be done to improve the place" "Good location,free very good Longhorn Steakhouse lunches,plenty of fruits,beverages and Starbucks coffee.Friendly Ash makes this course easy to complete.Great school." "went into this experience expecting it to be long, painful and awful. But taking my class here was a much better experience than I expected. The instructors were friendly, and being served breakfast and lunch was a huge benefit. I would recommend this school to anyone."

Testimonal! At first I only went to 1 act because they offer 2 day sessions but after going I realized that an all day session would have been a piece of cake. They treat you as if your an old friend all there staff is amazing even let me take home the homemade popcorn. It was also the most comfortable class I have ever been to. I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone at all ages that needs to take a defensive driving class or dui class. -Kujuan Gilbert
Georgia courts will consider removing points from your driving record if you participate in a six hour Georgia Defensive Driving/ Driver Improvement class. Georgia Department of Driver Services law mandates that you can only participate in a Defensive Driving program every five years in order to have points removed off your Georgia driving record. The judge overseeing your traffic violation will consider dismissing the ticket entirely if you have a good driving record and enroll in an Department of driver Services approved defensive driving school. 1 ACT Defensive Driving School will assist you during your registration to select the proper category and reason for taking the 6 hour Driver Improvement class. In most cases it will be for point reduction from your driving record, or for insurance purposes to reduce your insurance premium.

Testimonial! 1 Act DUI & Defensive Driving School was Excellent. I found this school on-line and when I called, Ash Hodge answered the phone. Ash was very Professional and really sold me into coming to this location for my 20 hour commitment. The Facility was Clean, Pleasant and Comfortable. Snacks and Refreshments were provided as well as FREE hot lunch from LONGHORN. My instructor name was David Watts. He was Awesome. He was upbeat, energetic, interactive and well spoken.The one thing about this facility is the fact that they were not judge-mental. Whatever your reason for having to take this course is strictly your own business. I highly recommend 1 Act DUI & Defensive Driving School to ANYONE. It will definitely be worth your while. -Rolanda Culpepper-Peralta
