Consequences Of Refusing A Chemical Test In California

On a first offense, if DMV makes a finding at your hearing that you refused and this is a first offense, you are looking at one year of no driving. No driving at all. No restricted driving, no to and from work, no to and from the DUI School. It’s a pretty painful penalty. No driving kids to school. No driving to medical appointments. Nothing. And also, it should be known that refusals are some of the toughest cases to win at DMV. It’s very important to get an attorney if you do refuse the chemical tests.
