A commercial driver's license (CDL) is a crucial asset for anyone who drives for their work. Truck drivers and other employees in the distribution business may require a CDL in order to stay on the road. A DUI or alcohol-related charge may seriously threaten a license holder's ability to legally drive a commercial vehicle. This can potentially compromise their livelihood.
If you have been charged with DUI, you may not be able to keep your commercial driver's license. However, an aggressive and committed attorney can help you fight these allegations. For more information about your rights as a defendant, contact the Redmond commercial DUI attorneys of Cowan Kirk by calling 866-822-1230 today.
CDL Loss from Driving Violations
A person may lose their commercial driver's license for a number of different reasons associated with the operation of a motor vehicle. These can include:
- Operating a commercial vehicle while over a 0.04 BAC commercial limit
- Hit-and-run charges, as well as other roadway violence allegations
First-time convictions can lead to a suspension of a CDL, which can lead to immediate job loss. If a person is convicted of a DUI multiple times, they may permanently lose their CDL. Depending on the circumstances of the conviction, it may be impossible for some individuals to have a CDL restored.
A DUI conviction can carry penalties that may threaten a commercial driver's career.
