During a DUI arrest, a refusal to submit to a blood or breath test will result in severe consequences. Mainly, your driver license will be suspended just based on the refusal.

The penalty increases for prior DUI convictions as well. Below is a list of the punishment you can face:


1st DUI

1 year driver license suspension


2nd DUI

2 year driver license suspension

It is also important to know that a refusal will make you ineligible for a restricted license during your suspension.
