What is a DUI “Refusal?”
Under Georgia law, if you are operating a vehicle on a public roadway, you are required to submit to a state-administered test of your blood, breath, urine, or other bodily substance. This is called Georgia’s Implied Consent Law. If you are stopped for a possible DUI, the officer will ask for your consent to administer one of these tests. You have the right to refuse to do so; however, a refusal will result in the automatic suspension of your driver’s license for one year.
If you are stopped for a DUI, it is usually in your best interests to refuse the state-administered tests. However, doing so may lead to you being charged with a “DUI-Refusal.” These cases are often easier to beat in court, but it still does not help you keep your driving privileges. In order to resolve your DUI and keep you driver’s license, you need the best DUI attorney that you can get to help guide you through the process.
