CDL Driver Defense
Special Costs of a DUI
If you have a commercial driver’s license, commonly referred to as a “CDL,” chances are you drive for a living. Whether you drive a truck, a bus, or a delivery vehicle, losing your license can jeopardize your current job, your long-term career, and your ability to earn an income. Beyond legal costs, this may have “family costs” as well. CDL drivers who enter into the first-offenders program (i.e., ARD) or are convicted of a DUI offense will have their commercial driving privileges disqualified for one year. If you add a chemical test refusal to that scenario, your commercial driving privileges can be disqualified for two years. A second DUI conviction will result in a lifetime CDL disqualification!
While most DUI offenders receive a license suspension for a DUI conviction, the stakes for a CDL driver are even higher. Can you imagine what it would be like if you could never drive a car again after two DUI convictions? For a CDL driver, a DUI on your record means that you will most likely be out of business.
