Q: What is the Implied Consent Law in New York State?

A: Implied consent is a theory of the law that is employed in many, many states. In New York State, what it means is once you have acquired a license, you give an implied consent that you will subject yourself to tests under certain circumstances, for example, to be arrested for suspicion of drunk driving. So it implies your consent by asking for and obtaining a license.
