Commercial Driver License (CDL) Suspensions

San Antonio Commercial Driver License (CDL) Suspensions Lawyer

Commercial Drivers LicenseIndividuals who hold a commercial driver license (CDL) may have their CDL disqualified for a specified amount of time if they are convicted of certain offenses. If a commercial driver is convicted of a DWI-related offense, they can receive both a criminal and an administrative license suspension or disqualification.

A commercial driver’s license (CDL) is a license which allows the driver to operate a vehicle that: (a) transports passengers or property, (b) has a gross combination weight rating of at least 26,001 pounds (including a tow unit), (c) is meant to carry at least 16 passengers, and/or (d) transports hazardous materials.

A person who holds a commercial driver’s license will lose his driving privilege for a period of one year if: (a) they have been convicted, for the first time, of driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics; (b ) they refuse to submit to a test to determine level of alcohol in body; (c) if blood, breath or urine test determines there was an alcohol level of .04 or more while operating the commercial vehicle in a public place; or (d) if there was an alcohol level of .08 or more while operating a motor vehicle (not a commercial vehicle) in a public place.
