Facing a DUI Due to a Failed Field Sobriety Test?

Learn Your Options: Speak with Our Santa Clarita DUI Defense Attorneys

Field sobriety tests are conducted by law enforcement officials who suspect a driver of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. These tests are designed to determine the driver's ability to complete standard actions.

There are three commonly used standardized tests for sobriety:

  • Horizontal gaze nystagmus (HGN)
  • Walk-and-turn
  • One-leg stand

These tests are used to help determine whether an individual is intoxicated, and can lead to further chemical testing, either with a breath or blood test, to measure their blood alcohol content (BAC). If you fail these tests, you may be arrested. Field sobriety testing is not an exact science, and can easily lead to unfair arrests and unwarranted DUI charges.

Speak with our knowledgeable lawyers immediately about the details concerning your field sobriety test and arrest. We can help you determine the validity of your charges and build a strong defense.
