Refusing the Breath, Blood, or Urine Test
Under Georgia’s Implied Consent Law anyone driving on the road in the state is presumed to have consented to a chemical test of their blood, breath, or urine when requested by an officer during their investigation of a DUI.
If you refuse the chemical test, the arresting officer will likely attempt to take away your privilege to drive. Often, people who have refused to take the State’s test during a DUI investigation will loose their license for a full year with no possibility of a limited driving permit. In such cases your options are severely limited. Often, the only way to get your license back is to get your charge reduced to something other than a DUI or to take your case to trial and get found not guilty.
