Although the Florida implied consent law says upon the request of a law enforcement officer you must give a breath sample you still have the option to refuse. This will result in less evidence being presented against you in court but there are consequences for refusing such as:
(a) Your licenses may be suspended for one year by the DMV. If it is your first offense you can get a hardship license to drive back and forth to work.
(b) The fact that you refused can be used against you in court.
(c) If it is your second refusal, your license will be suspended for 18 months by the DMV.
You will also be charged with a misdemeanor for a second refusal.
(d) You will not be eligible for a hardship license on a second refusal and cannot drive during the period of suspension.
