What is the Walk-and-Turn Test?

In this type of field sobriety evaluation, an officer will explain that you need to take nine heel-to-toe steps in a forward direction before turning with a specific type of pivot, one that the officer will demonstrate beforehand. Then you'll need to take another nine heel-to-toe steps, counting out each step.

If a driver shows the following, this could lead to a DUI arrest:

  • Poor balance
  • Miscounting
  • Pivoting differently
  • Deviating from a straight line

There are many other reasons someone can fail a walk-and-turn test, reasons that don't involve alcohol or drugs. After all, you may have been taking this crucial test while you blinked from the glare of intimidating police lights, on a busy road, with bad road conditions: you could have failed due to nerves alone. Any lack of coordination, weight issues, or even your age can affect the outcome of a field sobriety test.
