Commercial Drivers Professional License And DUI Charges

The penalty for a Commercial Drivers License holder is more severe than for normal drivers. The State of Washington has come down hard on commercial vehicle drivers who have alcohol and/or drugs in their blood while performing their duties on the highways. Accordingly, penalties and suspensions are more severe than for non-commercial driver's license holders.

Also, the probability of job loss is high.

One recent client writes:
'I wish to give many thanks to Mr. Nicholas George for keeping the citation I had received as well as any points off of my driving record. Ticket was dismissed. I am an over the road trucker that makes my living driving up and down the hwy. I feel that his prices are VERY reasonable and he will work with you also. If you have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) I WOULD recommend him to any and all of my trucker friends. THANK YOU!!!'
P.S. If I ever get into a problem again, you will be the FIRST one I call. Thank you again.

Along with DUI, the holder of a commercial driver's license must avoid committing a 'serious traffic violation'.

According to RCW 46.25.010(18) 'serious traffic violation' means:
(a) Excessive speeding defined as 15 miles per hour or more in excess of the posted limit;
(b) Reckless driving, as defined under state or local law;
(c) A violation of state or local law relating to motor vehicle traffic control, other than a parking violation, arising in connection with an accident or collision resulting in death to any person;
(d) Driving a commercial motor vehicle without a commercial driver's license in the driver's possession; however, any individual who provides proof to the court by the date the individual must appear in court or pay any fine for such a violation, that the individual held a valid DCL on the date the citation was issued, is not guilty of a 'serious traffic offense'.

Grounds for disqualifying a person from driving a commercial motor vehicle are numerous.
