What happens if I refused to take a breath or blood test after my DUII arrest?

The refusal to take a breath or blood test nearly always results in an implied consent suspension of your right to drive in Oregon of either one or three years depending on your DUII history.  If you act within 10 days of your arrest, you may request an appeal of your suspension with the Office of Administrative Hearings.

A chemical test refusal also generally results in a ticket for "refusal to take a test for intoxicants" under ORS 813.095.  If convicted of this offense you face a presumptive fine of $650.
