Question: Do I have to do a breath test before I am arrested for DUI in Encino, CA?

Answer: DUI’s and the process leading up to arrest can be confusing. Please call me at 818-336-1384 to discuss your specific question in more detail. If you are under 21 or on probation that requires you to submit to a Preliminary Alcohol Screening test, then you need to complete it if requested by an officer. If you are 21 or over and not on probation, then you do not need to perform a breath test prior to arrest for DUI, but you would have to perform a breath or blood test after arrest or you would be charged with a DUI enhancement for a Refusal. Call me to discuss your DUI situation further.
