While most DWI cases involve alcohol, this is not always the case. Some people are charged with DWI for the use of drugs-including over the counter or prescription drugs.

Examples of controlled substances that could qualify an individual as "intoxicated" include:
This means that even the use of legal drugs can lead to a DWI offense if it is determined that the substance impaired your mental or physical faculties.

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.
