Colorado Express Consent Law 

If you are stopped in Colorado and a State Trooper, a County Sheriff Deputy, or City Police Officer finds probable cause that you are Driving Under the Influence, they will invoke Colorado’s Express Consent law. Anyone with a driver’s license has already consented to chemical testing if suspected of DUI. Accordingly, the Colorado Express Consent law requires a driver to take a breath test or a blood test or suffer possible driving privilege consequences. Although you get to choose which test to take, you only have two hours to comply with the chemical test request. Consequently, delays on your part could be considered a refusal.

When you refuse to take either the blood or the breath test, the officer will take your driver’s license on the spot and hand you a Notice of Revocation.

DUI Arrest

After your DUI arrest, you may have to attend two types of hearings with County Court and the Department Of Motor Vehicles. Because these are separate governmental departments, it is very important that you READ CLOSELY all the information contained in the document you received.

First, read the DMV information below so that you understand the deadlines that you will have for a DMV hearing. Then locate the County Court section below and select the county page link for the county in which you were arrested. Or go to the LOCATE COUNTY navigation button above.

DMV Department of Motor Vehicles

You only have seven (7) days to request a DMV hearing following your arrest if you refused testing or took a breath test. This hearing is with the Department of Motor Vehicles DMV. There are important decisions that you must make in respect to that hearing. Therefore, you need experienced legal advice before you make those decisions. In addition you should hire the best Colorado DUI attorney you can afford. Call for a free consultation. 970-927-2255 office, Dan Shipp cell 970-379-3772 and Clay Shipp cell 970-309-9390.
