DWI & DWAI Charges For Commercial Drivers
Work with Our Westchester County DWI Attorney
Compared to other drivers, every driver holding a Commercial Driver License
(Class A, B, C) is held to stricter Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) standards,
and faces tougher penalties, while operating a vehicle that requires a
CDL license. A single conviction for DWI, DWAI, or having a .04 percent
or higher BAC requires a minimum 1–year revocation of the driver's
license (3 years, if driving a vehicle that requires hazardous materials
A second conviction within the driver's lifetime results in permanent
revocation, with a possible waiver after 10 years.
A third CDL DWI conviction results in a permanent revocation without any
possibility of ever getting it back. Drivers who hold a commercial license should review the Commercial Driver's
Manual (CDL–10), available at motor vehicle offices, for additional
information about penalties that apply to them.
