Implied consent means that any person who drives a motor vehicle in Rhode Island has given consent to a chemical (breathalyzer-blood-urine) test to determine the amount of alcohol/drug, if any, in their blood if arrested for suspected driving while intoxicated (DWI). If you refuse to take a chemical test, your license will be suspended for a minimum of six months. You are also subject to a fine, a highway safety assessment, public community service, and drunk driving school and/or referral to an alcohol treatment program.
