There is a backlog of blood tests at the Washington State Patrol. It seems to take at least four months for the blood to be tested. When it is tested, the lab will check for substances that could affect driving and/or illegal.
It was a local number but wanted me to call her back on a 1-855 number. She stated her name but not where she is from.

That number has too many digits, and the local court told you there is no record?
It's a scam. I would search Google for similar scams, that may ease your mind. You can always tell them to send you something in writing or ask where you can meet with someone in person, I'm sure they will decline.
There isn't any one answer for all cases, but there are certainly legal challenges that can sometimes result in suppression of the test result from evidence. You would need to go over the specific facts of your case with an experienced DUI lawyer to know if you have any legal defenses to fall...Read more »

I was convicted of 2 DUI's in 2011 and had my license suspended consecutive years. I did get the interlock device put in prior to my court dates. Both DUI charges were reduced to negligent and reckless. Since I couldn’t drive the interlock device was removed from my vehicle by the interlock... Read more »
That sounds right, the four month requirement would apply to someone in that situation. It's too bad you got wrong information from them in 2015, but based on what you have said I would expect you to have the four month requirement. I can't say for sure without looking at your history and...Read more »
A pending DUI will show on your DOL record. Not all the info on your record is actually reported when requests are made. For example, a pending DUI hearing would not show up on an insurance abstract. Traffic infractions do not show up unless they are found committed by the court. This is...Read more »
The answer changes a lot, depending on the breath / blood level, facts of the case (passengers, crash, dangerous driving), and what jurisdiction you are in. To get an accurate answer, talk to a DUI lawyer who works in the town where you were arrested.

You can refuse to take the Preliminary Breath Test (which is done on the scene) and the BAC test back at the station. There are consequences to refusing both.
