DUI Field Sobriety Tests & Breath Tests
Field sobriety tests are not mandatory—you may refuse to take them without legal consequence. However, refusing this test may not stop the officer from arresting you for DUI based on the evidence he has collected so far. It may still be best practice to refuse field sobriety tests, since the results cannot exonerate you. Ultimately, FST evidence may only be used against you in court.
Refusing a chemical breath, blood, or urine test usually results in harsh legal consequences for a driver. If you refuse a chemical test, the officer can automatically suspend your driver's license. If this occurs, you only have 10 days to schedule a DMV hearing to appeal the suspension. Otherwise, you could lose your driving privileges for a period of 6 months to more than 1 year.
