What Happens If You Refuse BAC Testing?

If you refuse BAC testing, the arresting officer will file a report. The determination is made by an Administrative Law Judge at DMV refusal hearings. The hearing will be scheduled within 15 days. You should make sure that your Carmel DMV refusal hearing lawyer receives a copy of the report prior to the hearing, as this contains pertinent information about the reason for the stop and evidence.

At the hearing, the judge will consider the following:

  • If the officer had reasonable suspicion that you were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Whether there was probable cause to make the arrest
  • If you had sufficient warning, that refusal would result in driver’s license suspension
  • Whether you refused to submit to testing
