CDL (Commercial Drivers License) DUI FYI »

North Charleston DUI Lawyer for Commercial Drivers

Charleston DUI Attorney

Defending Charleston DUI Charges for CDL drivers

requires an understanding of the unique circumstance truck drivers, limo & cab, etc drivers face.  The commercial vehicle involved is immaterial when a CDL driver is arrested for Driving Under the Influence.  The penalties against your commercial driving privileges are going to be far greater than those for a regular license.

Commercial Driver’s Licensees undergo far more scrutiny than the typical motorist.  If you’ve found this page you know all too well, the rigorous requirements for receiving and maintaining your CDL.

One year disqualification arises from:

Lifetime disqualification occurs if you are convicted twice!

The law was passed in 2008 so it only applies to violations occurring thereafter.

Future CDL hopefuls need to be aware that a suspension of any kind, like those that come from refusing the breath test or getting a DUI conviction will act as a complete bar to the issuance of a CDL.

Even your boss can get in trouble under South Carolina law.

If an employer fails to report one of the above issues, or continues to employ someone they know to have violated the statute, they can be fined between $500 and $2,000.
