CDL Drivers - Traffic Ticket or Citation Received in Private Vehicle

All commercially licensed drivers holding a CDL should keep in mind that ALL traffic violations received, including while operating a private vehicle or non commercial vehicle, count on your CDL.

Operating While Intoxicated, Driving with Prohibited Alcohol Concentration, any type of Hit-and-Run offense, Failure to Report Accident, accidents causing death are mandatory CDL revocations, regardless of whether you are operating as a CDL driver or private driver.

Disqualifying offenses like speeding 15 or more over, reckless driving, illegal passing, improper lane change, following too closely and other offenses obtained in a 2 or 3 year time frame can lead to CDL revocation, even if you were driving a non CDL vehicle.

Call a competent CDL / Commercial Driver’s License defense attorney when you receive any citation.
