The most common reason that a urine test is requested by the police for a Georgia DUI suspect has to do with the sample being tested for drugs, not alcohol specifically. For alcohol testing, urine samples are the least reliable form of DUI testing. In some cases, though, you may be asked to submit a urine sample for testing of alcohol. Urine testing is covered by the Georgia Implied Consent law, so you can face a suspension of your driver’s license if you refuse a urine test.
Usually, a urine sample will be requested of you after a Drug Recognition Evaluator (DRE) has performed a DRE exam. Urine is thought to be the most reliable form of testing for drugs within the body. DRE is more popular now that ever among police departments because the federal government is offering grants to police departments to train more and more officers.
