Question: What Are the Repercussions in Wisconsin If You Refuse the Breath Test Machine at the Station?

Answer: You're going to get a form called Notice of Intent to Revoke; it's a pink form, and that says that you have ten days to request a hearing. That hearing needs to be requested in the court in which the case is proceeding. That will automatically stay or hold off any possible revocation due to refusal. So what that would mean is that you actually have two charges: you have the drunk driving charge and a refusal charge, otherwise known as an Implied Consent Law violation. It's really important that within ten days that form gets filed. So you should get with your lawyer within that time period to do that for you.
