If You Have a Commercial Driver's License (CDL)…

A commercial driver's license (CDL) is a means to a livelihood. If you have a CDL and receive a DUI conviction, your ability to earn a living may be severely compromised. Even if you were not driving a commercial vehicle at the time of your DUI arrest, a conviction may directly impact your CDL. A first offense may disqualify you from having a CDL for one year. A second offense may disqualify you from having a CDL for a lifetime.
