Implied Consent and Refusing a Blood or Breath Test in Utah
Under Utah’s “implied consent” laws, all drivers lawfully arrested (not just stopped) for a DUI are required to submit to a blood or breath test. When you refuse to submit to the requested test, an officer will then obtain a warrant to receive a court order to draw a blood sample to determine impairment. A refusal will result in the following license suspensions periods:
License Revocation if you refuse
License Revocation if you submit
For purposes of determining what is a second or third refusal, prior DUI convictions, refusals, and failed BAC test (.05% or greater) within the past ten years are counted.
Know the law. Know your rights. Know the right attorney.
