Driving in Tennessee means that you have legally given your consent to be tested to determine the alcohol or drug content of your blood. This test must be administered at the request of a law enforcement officer who has reasonable grounds to believe you have been driving under the influence of an intoxicant or drug. If you refuse, the test will not be given, but the court notifies the Department of Safety and your driver’s license will be suspended for 12 months. For a first offense, you can lose your license for one year and for a second offense, for two years. In cases involving crashes, it can even be suspended for up to five years.
