COMMERCIAL DRIVER’S PENALTIES FOR A DRUNK DRIVING CONVICTION
Because commercial drivers are held to a much higher standard of safety than drivers of passenger vehicles, they face much higher penalties for violating DUI laws. One of the penalties is the loss/suspension of their commercial and/or non-commercial driver’s license.
First Time Violation/Conviction
Pursuant to California Vehicle Code 15300, a driver of a commercial vehicle who gets a first- time conviction of any of the following offenses, even while driving a non-commercial motor vehicle, will not be allowed to operate a commercial motor vehicle for a period of 1 year
Second Time Violation/Conviction
Pursuant to California Vehicle Code §15302, any of the above-listed DUI offenses will result in a suspension of the drivers’ commercial license for the rest of his or her life.
Suspension of Non-Commercial Driver’s License
Pursuant to Vehicle Code Section 13352 – “Suspension or Revocation for DUI or Speed Contest,” if the commercial license holder was driving a commercial motor vehicle at the time of committing a DUI offense, his/her non-commercial driving license privileges will be suspended/revoked.
Even if a CDL driver’s BAC is below .04 he can be issued an “out of service” ticket, which prevents driving for the next 24 hours. DUI penalties vary according to state laws but commercial drivers convicted of a CDL DUI face charges that can severely impact them, their families, and their careers.
