Advisement of Implied Consent Rights after DUI

You are under arrest for driving under the influence (DUI), Section 56-5-2930, South Carolina Code of Laws 1976, as amended. The arresting officer has directed that samples be taken for alcohol and/or drug testing. The samples will be taken and tested according to Section 56-5-2950 and SLED policies. You do not have to take the test or give the samples but if you refuse to submit to the test your privilege to drive in South Carolina must be suspended or denied for at least six (6) months and your refusal may be used against you in court.  If you take the tests or give the samples and have an alcohol concentration of .08% or more, you may instead be charged with Driving with an Unlawful Alcohol Concentration (DUAC) Section 56-5-2933. If you have an alcohol concentration of .15% or more your privilege to drive in South Carolina must be suspended for at least 1 month. You have the right to have a qualified person of your own choosing to conduct additional independent tests at your own expense and the officer, upon request must provide you with affirmative assistance. You have the right to request an administrative hearing within thirty (30) days of the issuance of the notice of suspension. If you do not request an administrative hearing or if your suspension is upheld at the administrative hearing you must enroll in an Alcohol and Drug Safety Action program.
