A stop that leads to a DUI is very similar to a regular traffic stop, until it's not. You should expect being asked for your license and registration. The officer may ask why you think you were pulled over. Things could quickly escalate from there if the officer makes any kind of observations that will give them indicators that you may be impaired. That's when the barrage of questions could begin. “Where are you coming from? Have you had anything to drink? Are you okay to drive? Get out of the car, so I can perform these field sobriety exercises and you can dispel my concern that you're safe to operate your motor vehicle.” Remember, this could get tense and nerve racking very quickly if the officer feels that you may be driving under the influence or DUI. Make sure to have your documents ready. You want to say as little as possible and remain as courteous with the officer as possible.
