If I got a DUI in 1 state but have moved to another, what do I do?

I got a DUI in VA (Navy base) then moved to IL. I’m still on probation, and was told that I need to do an alcohol education class. Can it be any class? Or does it need to be a certain one?

Ok so you need to get permission form the state that issued the sentence and the probation  to be allowed to move the probation to another state AND to do the class in another state.  May I ask: is this a DUI issued from the state of Virginia as you have indicated it was on a base.  Or did you just live on the base?  Are you in the army or are you a civilian?  I would contact an attorney in the Virginia are for help here on how to proceed.  I would not want to be caught violating your probation here.  Then your probation could be revoked and you would be up a creek without a paddle.  Note: if you are in the Army and you do not fear retribution I would suggest that you seek some legal advice from the legal personnel on your base.  It should be available to you.  Good luck.
