Does an officer only have to tell you what will happen if you refuse to blow for OWI?
I was only told if I refuse to blow I would be suspended for 2 yrs since it was my second one, but someone in court said they have to tell you what will happen if you don't and what will happen if you do and it's over the limit.
Most states have some sort of admonishment rule when it comes to DUIs. Hire an attorney for this matter.

How do I contest the DOT's requirements for reinstatement if I was never convicted of OWI?
I was charged with an OWI which was later thrown out of court and I was not convicted. I have shown the DOT proof of this decision and they still require I go through the examination, drunk driver school, civil penalty and so forth.

The driver and passenger have been charged with OWI.Can my Lawyer file for motion to suppress DWI evidence since I didn' drive?
I am the passenger that was asleep once the accident occurred. I lost conciseness once when I woke up my body was in the back seat. Police charged me and the driver who confessed being a driver of his vehicle. I asked the police officer why I am being charged with an OWI! He said that the witness believes that I was the driver but isn’t sure. I did refuse the PBT test because I wasn’t driving. Now the witness is the opposite driver, the vehicle that hit us. In the police report states that the witness saw my torso in the back seat and my legs hanging in the driver’s seat. He stated that he saw my driver in the passenger seat. My driver confessed at the scene that he was driving the vehicle numerous times; he confessed that also a front of the Jail Judge. The actual driver got sentenced and pleads guilty that he was a driver. I am still being prosecuted. Is it possible to file for motion to suppress DWI evidence? If the prosecutor decides not to file charges against me, I will still lose my license for 2 years. How is this possible? I really do need some professional advice. Thank you
You will need to challenge whether there were reasonable grounds to believe that you were operating a motor vehicle....
