DUI and Your CDL (Commercial Drivers Beware)
”But I was in my own car, on my own time!”
If you have a commercial driver’s license an Ohio DUI charge can have devastating effects on your career. Often clients who hold a commercial driver’s license fail to understand that Ohio’s OVI laws can affect your livelihood even if you receive a drunk driving charge while you are not operating a commercial vehicle. If you plead guilty, or are found guilty, of an OVI (drunk driving) offense your commercial driver’s license will be taken away for one year. If you are a second-time OVI offender, an Ohio OVI will result in an indefinite revocation of your CDL. What is more, a court cannot give you privileges to operate a commercial vehicle while the case is pending and that a CDL suspension is in addition to any suspension that the court may impose. If you drive for a living these penalties can be devastating for you and your family. If you have been arrested for DUI in Ohio and you have a commercial driver’s license contact Charles M.
