I was extremely nervous and have never been put in this situation. At the station, I talked to a public defender on the phone and even remember her name. She informed me that it was a good decision to not waive my rights (before taking the test, which pissed him off) and she said "never refuse to take it" so I then confirmed that I would take it. When the police officer took my test, he did one attempt and claimed it was an automatic refusal. I then said, I was not refusing. I didn't understand what you were asking and he refused to let me try again.
