Protect Your License & Your Job

If you hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL), a traffic violation can have an even greater impact on you than the average driver.

At McIlhinney Law Group, we fight to help our clients retain their commercial driving privileges and avoid points on their licenses.

CDL Driver Disqualification

Certain violations may disqualify you from obtaining a commercial license. These violations do not result in a suspension for a normal driver’s license. This means that, even if your driver’s license isn’t suspended, you will not be able to drive commercially.

Disqualifications for a CDL include:

  • Major traffic offenses – Results in a one-year disqualification for a first conviction and a lifetime disqualification for a second conviction
  • Serious traffic offenses – No disqualification for a first offense; 60 days for a second offense; 120 days for a third offense
  • Railroad grade crossing violations – 60-day disqualification for a first offense; 120-day disqualification for a second offense; one-year disqualification for a third offense
  • Violations of out-of-service orders – Up to one year of disqualification for a first offense; up to five years disqualification for a second offense; at least three but up to five years disqualification for a third offense.

In addition to the loss of your commercial driving privileges, your career could be at risk. Many companies won’t keep drivers after a disqualification due to their own policies or insurance requirements. Many insurance companies drop commercial drivers who accrue more than two points on their licenses. If you do keep your insurance, the premiums may increase significantly.
