What if I am pulled over for drunk driving in California and refuse to take chemical or field sobriety tests?

California has an “implied consent” law, which means that if you are suspected of drunk and driving, and refuse to submit to testing, you could face penalties such as mandatory suspension of your driver’s license. 

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
