What Happens To My Commercial License If I Refuse to Take a DUI Test In Kentucky

Having and maintaining a commercial driver’s license means the difference between having a job and being unemployed for many people.  So what happens if you are suspected of driving under the influence and refuse to submit to tests of breath, urine or blood, when requested to do so by the authorities in Kentucky?

Kentucky’s implied consent law applies to all commercial drivers.  As you can imagine, the stakes go up for anyone who refuses these tests while operating a commercial vehicle.

In Kentucky, the first refusal by a commercial driver to submit to any DUI test will result in an automatic ONE YEAR license suspension.  The second time a commercial driver refuses to submit to DUI testing, Kentucky will PERMANENTLY suspend your commercial license for life.  You will never return to the road in Kentucky as  commercial driver.
