Every year, the DUI laws get tougher and tougher. As it stands now, if you are arrested for DUI or if you refuse to take a blood, urine or breath test, your license can be immediately suspended. If the results of a breath or blood test are .08 or higher, your license can also be suspended. If you try to take the test, but the police say you refused (i.e. you did not blow hard enough), your license can be suspended immediately. If you are under 21 when you are arrested, and the result of the test is .02 or higher, you qualify for immediate suspension. If you have a CDL you will be unable to drive commercially, if your privileges are not reinstated. It is pertinent that you contact an attorney regarding your DUI arrest or refusal to test immediately. Even if you beat the charge in court, the DHSMV has its own set of DUI rules that you must deal with.
