Non Standardized Field Sobriety Tests

The Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test, nine step walk and turn test and one leg stand test are the only three tests which are standardized and validated by NHSTA. In practice, the Rhode Island police commonly employ additional tests in the field. When these tests are utilized in an arrest, it is highly important to have a skilled DUI defense lawyer who can attack the validity of there use. Common non-standardized tests used are as follows:

  • Touching finger to nose
  • Reciting the alphabet test
  • Reverse counting test
  • Coin pickup test
