Keeping your Commercial Driver’s License record clean is of the highest priority for anyone who depends on the CDL for his or her job. Unfortunately, even the smallest of infractions like speeding or running a red light can threaten a CDL holder. This is true even if you weren’t working at the time and even if you were driving your own personal vehicle. Penalties range from a 60 or 120-day license suspension to permanent disqualification for the most serious offenses, like DUI. These are not penalties that a CDL driver can afford.
Even if you’ve received a citation or citations, there is a way to save your CDL status. The Skubiak & Rivas traffic law attorneys have successfully defended CDL drivers in Orlando, Seminole, Orange, and Osceola Counties to have convictions overturned or reduced, thus preserving the driver’s record and CDL status.
Fighting Commercial Driver’s License Violations
It is possible to fight a CDL violation and you definitely should! It’s hard enough to obtain a CDL in the first place, the last thing you want is to lose it temporarily or permanently. Driving school is not an option for CDL citations, which means your only option is to fight the charge in court.
You need to act quickly though. You will only have 30 days from the time of the citation to request a hearing. There are a number of defenses that can be applied to reduce your charges or have the ticket dismissed.
