Commercial Drivers Facing a DUI Charge - What You Need to Know


If you hold a Commercial Driver's License and are arrested for DUI, your commercial license is at risk, even if you were driving your personal vehicle at the time of the arrest.  With your livelihood in jeopardy, it is crucially important that your lawyer mounts a strong and effective defense.  Here are some points to consider if you have a commercial license.

  • If you are convicted of a DUI, you will lose your commercial license for one year.
  • If you have a prior DUI conviction, you face losing your commercial license permanently.
  • You must win your DMV hearing in order to avoid loss of your commercial license.
  • If you were driving a commercial vehicle at the time of your arrest, the legal limit for alcohol is .04%, NOT .08%.
  • You must request a DMV hearing within 10 days of your arrest to avoid a license suspension.  The Crawford Law Firm, Inc. will request the hearing for you, regardless of whether you hire Mr. Crawford to handle your case.
  • Public defenders do not handle DMV proceedings.
