CDL DUI Penalties
Those who have CDL's and operate commercial vehicles in our state face specific challenges with regard to being accused of drunk driving. Not only could they face severe penalties, they are likely to lose their ability to make a living as a driver. Most commercial driving jobs do not employ people with a DUI on their record; a conviction also leads to a suspended license, making it impossible to work as a professional driver.
Any CDL DUI or CMV DUI conviction will result in the accused river losing their CDL for 1 year, in addition to fines and other ramifications. A person convicted of a second CDL DUI offense will have their CDL permanently revoked. If you are facing this dangerous situation, we urge you to contact our firm immediately after your arrest, as early involvement could lead to a fast and positive resolution in your case.
