What if I refuse the preliminary breath test?
Many people confuse the PBT with the blood/breath test that is administered after a person has actually arrested for a DUI in Maricopa County. In this case if you do not give breath/blood after you have been taken to the station, your license will in fact be suspended for a year. This is called “Admin Per Se/Implied Consent.”
Arizona’s Implied Consent law states that if you are arrested lawfully by an officer who has grounds to believe that you have been driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, then you automatically consent to taking a breath, urine or blood test to determine your blood alcohol (BAC.) However, before you submit to the blood/breath test always ask for a confidential phone call with a DUI lawyer.
