If you refuse the test, your license is automatically suspended. If a drunk does not submit to the test, the prosecutor would have to rely on other evidence to prove that the defendant was driving under the influence. If sober person refuses the test, than they are more likely to get charged with DUI based upon other indicators, where the negative test would prove they aren't drunk, and less likely to cite the driver. The harm or value of not submitting to the test differs on whether you are talking about an adult or a minor

Good luck
