A CDL violation is a serious matter because it can impact your ability to work.
When a driver operates a commercial vehicle, such as a commercial delivery truck, a bus, or a construction vehicle, the driver is required to obtain a commercial driver’s license (CDL). A CDL is similar to a normal driver’s license, except it is far easier to violate the terms of having a CDL than a normal driver’s license. As a CDL holder, you are held to a higher standard of scrutiny than a normal driver when it comes to how you behave behind the wheel. Not only is your driving conduct behind the wheel of a commercial vehicle scrutinized, but so is your behavior behind the wheel of your own personal vehicle.
Committing a traffic violation while operating a commercial vehicle or your own personal vehicle can result in you having to deal with a CDL disqualification, which is similar to a driver’s license suspension.
If you are a professional commercial driver and you lose your CDL license over a CDL violation, you are effectively going to be out of a job. That is why it is important for you to fight the underlying charges that you are facing that could cost you your CDL. You need to consult with an experienced Ohio CDL violations defense lawyer as soon as possible.
Basically, any traffic offense or moving violation can be a CDL violation. CDL disqualifications can last for a very long period of time. The shortest CDL disqualification can last for 60 days, and the longest CDL disqualification can last for the rest of your life. For instance, any of the following can result in a CDL disqualification:
If you are at risk of losing your CDL because you have been charged with some other traffic violation, it is critically important that you do not plead guilty to the offense. Instead, you need to seek the counsel of an experienced CDL violations attorney as soon as possible.
Your lawyer will help you identify your best defenses to the charges that you face and will help you fight for your right to keep your CDL. The experienced CDL violations lawyers at The VanNoy Firm understand how serious losing your CDL can be for you and that is why we work so hard to protect your CDL.
