A Commercial Drivers License (CDL) is a career for most CDL holders. A DUI arrest for a CDL holder in a personal vehicle can have career ending consequences. A Personal Drivers License can be lost for 90 days, 1 year, 2 or more, but a CDL is lost for 1 year, or for life depending on the CDL holder's record unrelated to prior DUI arrests. If you hold a CDL and you are arrested for a DUI off -duty you face the potential loss of your career. If you are arrested for a Commercial Motor Vehicle DUI because you are over the .04 limit you again face a loss of the CDL for1 year at a minimum. Even if you are less than a .04 breath you face not only the loss of your CDL, but a criminal conviction for driving a Commercial Motor vehicle with alcohol in your system. If you have a CDL and are looking for basic information take 20 minutes and have a listen to the podcast.

“Jonathan, thank you for bringing the best possible outcome today in my case. It was a humbling and very sobering experience and I am mindful everyday of my personal responsibility and actions and those around me. My career has taken off and I’m glad to have this chapter behind me and will move onward past probation!”Julie
