Refusing to submit to a breath test following suspicion of drunk driving is a serious offense in Florida. A first-time refusal allows the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to suspend your driver’s license. A second refusal is a first-degree misdemeanor and a criminal offense.

If you have refused to allow a breath test, you still have legal options, including the possibility of 1) preventing your driver’s license from being suspended, and 2) avoiding conviction of criminal charges. For instance:

  • If you have refused to allow a breath test a first time, you are entitled to a DMV hearing and may challenge the legality of the refusal.
  • If you have refused to allow a breath test a second time, you can challenge your criminal charges.
