I got an MIP last night and my court date is in two months from now. Am I legally not allowed to drive until then? How does that work?

You can't drive if you were given such notice. I have not seen that happen, but follow the orders you were given. Typically, the Department of Motor Vehicles would notify you if your license was suspended (provided it has your correct address).

Hello- Community service, alcohol classes, and maybe monitored sobriety.

Your license may only be affected if you are convicted - so you are fine to drive for now. On a first offense, even if you are convicted, only if you don't do the alcohol program do you lose your license. Plus many counties will offer a 'diversion' or something like that, so if you do an alcohol program they will dismiss the case on a first offense.
