At Peveto Law, we can guide you through the intricacies of the legal system in order to get the most favorable results possible.
What is Implied Consent?
Driving is considered a privilege, not a right. If you are a licensed driver, you automatically agree to participate in a breath or blood test in the event of a DWI arrest. If an officer has probable cause to believe that you have been operating a vehicle while intoxicated, then you consent to take one or more chemical tests of your breath or blood to determine your BAC level. Refusing to take the test results in an automatic suspension of your license.
Your licenses will be suspended for the following periods of time if you refuse:
- First DWI Offense – 180 days license suspension
- Second DWI Offense – Two-year license suspension
- Third DWI Offense – Two-year license suspension
