What are the penalties for CDL DUI?

DUI is a very heavily penalized offense, and unfortunately, commercial drivers face increased penalties. For instance, to be convicted of a DUI as a commercial driver, you only need to have a blood-alcohol percentage of over .04%, compared to the regular .08%. That is because commercial drivers carry more responsibility. They are in charge of delivering cargo or transporting people, and they have to represent an exemplary image of the company they work for. Commercial drivers can even be penalized if the offense occurred in their own personal vehicle.

Commercial drivers charged with DUI will face:

  • 1-year license suspension at a minimum
  • Large fees to reinstate license
  • Thousands of dollars in fines
  • Job loss
  • Possible jail sentencing
  • Probation
