Implied Consent

What’s Implied Consent?

Implied Consent basically means that your consent to take part in blood and breathe testing is implied by virtue of you being a Texas Driver License holder. In other words, by lawfully driving in Texas you’ve consented to chemical testing like roadside Blood, Breath, and Blood Testing. Under this legal standard, refusing to participate in the sobriety testing process will result in the suspension of your TDL, and criminal charges for DWI which will land you in jail.

Penalties for refusing consent will lead to an ALR hearing and are separate from any penalties related to the originating offense.
