I have a CDL and I’m being charged with a DUI, what should I do?

If you have a commercial license and you’re charged with DUI, this becomes a very serious matter because you potentially could have your commercial driver’s license disqualified for a period of one year.

You will have the ability to send out $375 within 20 days of your arrest to request a hearing on the administrative side. If you lose that Department of Licensing hearing, your CDL will be disqualified for one year.

Also, if you’re convicted of a DUI, or you’re convicted of a physical control, or you do a deferred prosecution on your DUI charge, any of those will result in a one year disqualification of your commercial license.

It’s very important, especially if you have a commercial license, to get ahold of an attorney immediately.
