Refusing the Chemical Tests On a Subsequent Offense if You Have a Prior Conviction

Interviewer: What happens if you have a refusal on a second DUI?

Aaron: Well, let’s say you’re not on probation anymore. You’re looking at one year, followed by three months of no driving. This is why I say it’s complicated on the second offense, because there are so many different combinations. Are you on probation? Aren’t you on probation?

The important thing to always do is if you’re not sure of what it’s going to be or if you want to know what it’s going to be once everything is settled and in the computers, is you can call the Mandatory Actions Unit in Sacramento and they can usually give you an answer, hopefully, an accurate answer. The local DMV is very poor at informing you as to what or how long a suspension or restriction will be.
