DUI sobriety tests

Question: Can I choose which sobriety test to take if arrested for a DUI in Los Angeles, CA…Van Nuys specifically (if that matters)? For example, can I choose a breath test? or can they make me take a blood test?
Answer: Assuming both are available, you can choose breath or blood. If the breath machine doesn’t work, or the cops feel that you may be under the influence of drugs, they can also require you to do a blood test as well. Keep in mind that this is different than field sobriety tests (which occur prior to a DUI arrest).
