License Suspension and Chemical Test Refusals

There is much confusion as to whether or not a driver should submit to a chemical test when suspected of DUI.  On the one hand, if a driver submits to a chemical test a fails, those test results can be used as evidence against the driver.  On the other hand, if the driver refuses to submit to a chemical test, his or her license will be suspended.

Under the implied consent law, all drivers are required to submit to a breath or blood test at the request of an officer. Failing to submit to a chemical test when suspected of driving under the influence will result in a license suspension.  The following information, taken from the California DMV website, will give you an idea about how long your license will be suspended if you refuse to submit to a breath or blood test:

  • First offense: 1 year license suspension
  • Second offense within 10 years: 2 year license revocation
  • Third or subsequent offense within 10 years: 3 year license revocation
