Failing to Provide a Specimen
If you also fail to provide a specimen of breath at the police station, you are likely to be charged with the alternative offence of ‘failing to provide a specimen for analysis’. You may have a defence to this if you have a reasonable excuse for not doing so, e.g. a medical condition which can be backed up by documentary evidence. If convicted of this offence, a driver will usually receive a fine and disqualification for a minimum period of 12 months.
Penalties for drink driving include an unlimited fine and 6 months’ imprisonment. If you have a previous conviction for a drink driving related offence within the last 10 years then there will be a minimum of a 3-year driving ban. It may be possible to undertake a drink-driver rehabilitation course which can reduce the period of disqualification by one quarter.
