I think the idea is not to even let it get as far as court. I know quite a few people who have basically just told the courts that they do not wish to do business with them, that they do not waiver any of their rights and that any attempt to contract with them will be on their terms and a charge of their making will be applied.
They are doing commerce after all. You have to really know your stuff though.
While under their system, driving (commercial activity) is a privilege. Traveling is most certainly not. Your freedom of movement is a right that can not be legislated away. You don't need a license to travel in your own car. That is a right.

Some DDP participants are referred from the class- room phase for formal substance abuse evaluation. Referral can result from:
• the results of a written self-inventory.
• two or more alcohol or drug-related driving convictions within 10 years.
• arrest for an alcohol or drug-related driving violation while enrolled in the DDP.
• attending class under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
• a request by the student for help with a substance abuse problem, or an admission that the student is currently in treatment.
If you are referred for evaluation, you may choose a provider from a list supplied by the DDP. If you are not satisfied with the results of the evaluation, you may contact the DDP director and request a second evalua- tion. However, you must accept the findings of the second evaluation.
After evaluation, you may be required to complete a formal substance abuse treatment program. If you fail to complete required evaluation or treatment, you will be dropped from the DDP and your conditional license will be revoked.
If you are dropped from the Drinking Driver Program, your conditional license will be revoked, and your original license suspension or revocation will be reinstated for its full length.

Please show me where in the Constitution your right to travel is? Your world view is skewed by having grown up with freedom which you now feel is a right, but in point of fact, it is not. Freedom including that of movement is bestowed upon you and is a privileged which you "earn" by obeying laws and being a "good citizen" . What the government giveth, it can always take away.
