Can You Refuse A Breathalyzer Test in Colorado?

Back to DUI Law

can you refuse a breathalyzer

When you are arrested for a DUI, UDD, or DWAI, or are considered a consistent abuser os controlled substance, Colorado Law requires the abuser take responsibility for his or her actions by taking a breath or blood test.

In Colorado’s “expressed consent” law, if the arresting officer has probable cause to believe a person has been driving under the influence, they can require the driver to take a chemical test of blood or breath to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC). If you fail or refuse to take a chemical test, blood, breath, or urine, your license will be suspended. Depending on the amount of refusals incurred, a license can be suspended for up to three years.
