The test shall be administered at the direction of the arresting law enforcement officer whenever the person has been arrested for the offense.

The failure or inability to obtain an additional test by a person shall not preclude the admission of evidence relating to the test taken at the direction of a law enforcement officer.

4. Upon the request of the person who is tested, full information concerning the test shall be made available to such person.
