Breath Test Refusal in Morgantown

DUI Lawyer in Morgantown

It is against the law in this state to drive a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or greater. If you are pulled over by police for DUI, you will be asked to take various tests to determine if you are intoxicated. These tests, including the breath test, are all voluntary. If you refuse to take the DUI tests that are requested, the police can still arrest you for drunk driving if they smell alcohol on your breath or there are other indicators that you have been drinking. Following your arrest, you will again be requested to take a DUI test, such as a breath test. If you refuse, your driver's license will be automatically suspended. The penalties for a first time offense of refusing to take a breath test include:

  • A minimum of 45 days to a maximum lifetime driver's license suspension
  • A one year driver's license suspension if you agree to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle
