What is Implied Consent?

(Last Updated On: October 19, 2018)

Defining Implied Consent

Implied Consent is as follows: Any person who operates a motor vehicle within the state of Arizona and is arrested for an offense related to drinking and driving is presumed to have given consent to a test of his/her breath, blood, urine or other bodily substance, for the purpose of determining alcohol concentration.

The peace officer has the authority to decide what type of test the driver must complete and the power to require more than one type of test.

During a consultation with your attorney, try your best to remember the details of your traffic stop.
