What Do I Do if My Commercial Driver’s License is Suspended?
This is a very serious problem, as a suspended CDL completely robs you of your livelihood. A history of offenses can keep you from getting future work. The good news is you have options.
If you have a ticket or citation on your CDL, you have just as much right to fight it as any other ticket. At the same time, if your CDL is suspended, you also have options.
Some of the violations that can lead to a suspended CDL include:
• DUI offenses
• Using a commercial motor vehicle to commit a felony
• Negligent operation resulting in a fatality
• Driving with a suspended, revoked or cancelled CDL
• Refusal to submit to chemical testing
• Driving a commercial vehicle without obtaining a CDL
• Speeding in an active work zone (11 m.p.h. over or more), improper lane change, following too closely
