Definition of Implied Consent

Drivers who operate a motorized vehicle have, under implied consent laws, given their implied consent to perform a blood alcohol concentration or BAC test if asked to do so by a police officer. If a driver refuses to submit to the test or fails the test they can have their driver's license immediately suspended for a specific time period. Drivers who have their license suspended can request a hearing to have the suspension reviewed by the court. State laws vary, but all drivers should be aware of possible legal consequences of refusing to submit to a chemical test.
