Do you think I will lose my license after blood test at legal limit is 35
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

I'm really sorry but that is likely I'm afraid. It is possible that you could have blown under. It depends how quickly your body processes alcohol. You have to be realistic though. It is unlikely. If you were 45 at the police station then it is possible you could be under 35 30 mins later but it cannot be relied upon. If you are over 35 then I'm afraid a ban is inevitable. Courts have no discretion. A ban is mandatory upon conviction of drink driving. I'm very sorry but i have to give you truthful information. Can I clarify anything for you?
