If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) for the third time, you face a third degree felony conviction. This could bring with it a prison sentence of between two and 10 years, along with a fine of up to $10,000.00.
Other penalties for a third DWI conviction may include:
In addition to the penalties that are listed above, if you are convicted of a third DWI within the five-year period following your previous offense, you will be required to install an ignition interlock device (IID) in your vehicle. This device will require your breath sample in order to start the engine each time. If you do not provide a clean sample, you will be unable to start your car. The IID will also require you to provide breath samples at regular intervals while driving.
The sooner you get in touch with our team, the better. Remember: After a DWI arrest, you have just 15 days to request a hearing or your license will be automatically suspended.

If you know that you can pass the tests when asked to perform them, you can choose to take them--but keep in kind many peiple can't pass them when they are sober! attempt them.
Otherwise, tell the officer you’d like to contact a lawyer, and refuse the field sobriety tests without a lawyer present.
Another approach you could take is asking the officer if you’re required to take the field sobriety tests. The honest answer: no, you’re not.
Stay polite and courteous, but do not apologize or admit to anything. Don’t try to talk your way out of anything, as you will likely incriminate yourself indoing so.
Exercise your rights. When the officer asks you incriminating questions-How much have you had to drink? When did you have your first drink? and so on...explain that your are uncomfortable answering questions of a criminal nature without an attornery present-ask to have your attorney present for any questioning, and tell the officer you otherwise would like to exercise your right to remain silent. Regardless of his response to your statements (“You’re not under arrest” or “You don’t need an attorney”), remain silent.
