Refusing a Chemical Test
Michigan law requires that every person that is granted the privilege to drive must agree to take a chemical (breath or blood) test if properly arrested for suspicion of DUI. Failure to take the test shall result in a license suspension of one year. If you have refused a test and are facing a license suspension, there are many things that must be done to preserve your license. First, an administrative hearing must be requested within 14 days of the arrest.
Attorneys at the Law Office of Barton Morris are skilled in the different techniques to avoid the license suspension or, if necessary regain driving privileges on a restricted basis for court, work or school purposes.
Because of the severe penalties associated with DUI and refusing a chemical test, you should consult with and hire a Michigan DUI lawyer immediately to protect and preserve your rights.
