Breath Tests

Refusing a Breath Test

In signing an application for a California driver's license, you agree to submit to a chemical test to determine the drug or alcohol content of your body when requested by an officer.  If you then refuse, you may still be arrested on a DUI charge if the arresting officer deems you impaired by drugs or alcohol.  In this case, your license may be suspended for one year, or revoked for up to three years for repeat offenses of refusing to test.

If you have been charged with driving under the influence, a Santa Monica DUI lawyer should be contacted immediately.  Whether or not you refused a breath test, an attorney can look into several aspects of your case which may improve its outcome.  An arrest for drunk driving results in proceedings through the DMV as well as the court, and legal representation can make a drastic difference in both matters.
