FAILING TO PROVIDE A URINE SPECIMEN (DR30 CONVICTION)

Unless they have a reasonable excuse for not providing, it is an offence when a person either refuses to or is unable to provide a urine sample for analysis when asked to do so at the police station.

Usually, the person will have been arrested after taking a roadside breath test which proved positive. The police officer must warn the person that failure to provide a sample may make him/her liable to prosecution.

Failure to provide a specimen after driving or attempting to drive is known as a DR30 offence will carry if convicted a minimum 12-month driving ban, maximum 6-month prison sentence and a £5,000 fine. If the offence is committed within 10 years of a similar conviction or drink-driving related conviction, then the disqualification must be for at least 3 years.

The severity of these penalties makes it crucial for you to seek immediate, specialist representation.

The drink driving solicitors at Brian Koffman & Co can help you.

In cases where a person is required to provide the specimen, having been found drunk in charge, it is possible to persuade the courts to impose penalty points in certain circumstances.

I have recently had the pleasure of dealing with Brian regarding a motoring offence for a close friend of mine. Brian has been amazing throughout the whole process with regular and clear... communication. Brian is professional and extremely knowledgeable in his field of expertise. Furthermore, and more importantly, Brian managed to get my friend the best possible outcome that we just didn’t think was possible. Hopefully, I never have to use Brian personally, however if I do commit a motoring offence, he will definitely be the man I call. I have already referred a family member of mine to Brian as I know he will be taken care of.Brian, thank you once again for all your hard work which in turn gave us the best possible outcome.read more
