What happens if I refuse a breath test in Florida?

Florida is an implied consent state. That simply means that as a holder of a driver’s license in the State of Florida, you consent to having your breath tested if a police officer has probable cause to believe that you are operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. Now, if you refuse that test, you will lose your license for a year. It is very important to hire a qualified DUI attorney to represent you at an administrative hearing and in subsequent criminal hearings so that you can get your license back for business purposes if you qualify.
