Minnesota Field Sobriety Testing Attorneys & Lawyers
Minnesota test refusal law states that one is supposed to a give blood, urine or breath sample test upon request by a law enforcement officer. The officer will not force you to submit to a test. Minnesota test refusal laws (Minnesota’s implied consent law) are very tough and carry stiffer penalties than one would face on a first time DWI with a test result between .08 and .19.
Mr. David Koob, I wanted to Thank you in writing regarding my 4th Degree DWI. I had multiple charges & was facing jail time & fines. I was looking for the “Best Possible Outcome”. Your knowledge of DWI Law gave me comfort. On the day of the “Court Hearing you gave me confidence & removed a large amount of fear.

I am “extremely Pleased” to have my Life back again to focus on my Family & Future. You have my “Highest Recomendation”.
Thank you again
Test Refusal and License Revocation in Minnesota
If you fail to provide a test you are facing a situation where your license will be revoked for a period of one year. You will be eligible to apply for a restricted license after a period of 30 days. A subsequent DWI within a period of ten years will cause your license to be revoked for a period of one year but the period before which you would be eligible for a restricted license will be six months. Test refusal charges are tougher if the violator is under the age of 21 years and even more tough if the age is under 18 years.
If you have 3 alcohol-related violations within ten years, your driver’s license can be cancelled permanently. The loss of your license can be effectively challenged if legal grounds for the challenge exists.
