I refused a chemical test on the side of the road and in the back of the police cruiser without talking to a lawyer. I was taken to jail. Before I was booked I told the officer that I consented to a breath test. He told me that he had already given me enough chances and that he would not allow it. Then he asked me to sign some express consent form and I refused to sign it without a lawyer because the refusal box was already checked. I am just wondering if there will be a chance for me to bring this up at my DMV hearing and maybe save my license. I learned from a previous post on this site to apply for a hearing so that's what I did. My report even says I consented at the station but the officer had already given me enough chances. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
