REFUSAL ENHANCEMENT

 

WHAT IS A REFUSAL ENHANCEMENT?

 

  • When you drive in California, you give the state what is known as "implied consent" to provide a chemical test after a DUI arrest per Vehicle Code §23612

 

  • A Refusal Enhancement charge indicates that you have failed to comply with the implied consent rule by refusing to submit to a chemical test by way of breath or blood. If drugs were suspected you must consent to a urine test. This is different from a Preliminary Alcohol Screening (PAS) test which is often administered before a DUI arrest

WHAT ARE THE INCREASED PENALTIES FOR REFUSAL OF A DUI TEST?

  • The above penalties are separate from additional penalties you may receive from the DUI conviction​

CAN YOU FIGHT A REFUSAL ENHANCEMENT CHARGE?

 

  • Yes.  An experienced DUI attorney can assess your enhancement charge and defend the refusal case 

 

HOW WILL A REFUSAL ENHANCEMENT AFFECT MY LICENSE SUSPENSION?

 

  • First DUI will result in a 1 year license suspension without the possibility of a restricted license

  • For subsequent DUI convictions, an additional 1 year suspension time may imposed by the Court
