Re: 2nd dui

If you didn't "blow", meaning that you refused to provide a sample of your presumably alcoholic laden breath, you can still be tried on your refusal and if convicted(that such refusal was unreasonable under the circumstances),

your license will still be suspended for one year. (See Va. Code Sec. 18.2-268.3-4.)

Whether the court would agree to permit you to have a restricted license under these circumstances would be a matter that the judge would have to evaluate very carefully, after considering all of the relevant factors in your case.
