Understand how Oklahoma laws apply to chemical testing

When a driver is stopped for the suspicion of drunk driving, the police department has to prove that the driver was over the legal limit for the amount of alcohol in their system. This is done with breath tests and blood tests. These tests must be done in accordance with laws that are set forth by the state. These laws are complex and can be confusing, so if you are facing criminal charges pertaining to these tests, we can help you to understand those charges.

When you get your driver's license, you agree to the concept of implied consent. This means that with very few exceptions, you agree to submit to a test that can determine your blood alcohol concentration when a law enforcement officer asks you to do so. Failing to comply with that request, as well as failing the BAC test, can mean that you will lose your driver's license.

If you are facing the loss of your license, you must act quickly. From the date of your arrest, you have 15 days to request a hearing with the Department of Public Services. If you don't do that, you can lose your license without any chance of fighting to keep it. We can help you with this aspect of your case.

When it comes to fighting the results of the chemical test, there are two avenues that we can explore. One is whether you were informed of consequences and rights regarding the test. The other is whether there were valid grounds for stopping you and requesting the chemical test.
