Refusing to take a breathalyzer test or any chemical test whether it be a breath test or giving a blood sample can have consequences that affect your Driver’s License. A chemical test is needed to determine your blood alcohol content, otherwise known as “BAC.” If you refuse to submit to a chemical test, you can be restrained and be forced to be tested. Refusal of a chemical test may result in a one year suspension of your driver’s license without the possibility of a restricted license. California law requires that a person to submit to a chemical test upon request of a peace officer.
