alcohol or drug-related offense while driving either a commercial motor vehicle or a personal vehicle

The Penalties for CDL DUI Charges
The Department of Motor Vehicles will revoke the commercial driving privileges
of a driver holding a CDL license for one year for a first-time offense
if the driver is found to have driven a commercial motor vehicle in Colorado
when the driver's BAC is 0.04 or more at the time of driving or any
time thereafter. If, at the time of the offense, the vehicle was carrying
hazardous material the revocation of the CDL for a first offense is three years.
The DMV will also revoke a CDL for one year if a driver is found to have
driven any vehicle-even for private use-with a BAC of 0.08 or more at
the time of driving or within two hours of driving and it is a first-time
offense. Further, a CDL will be revoked for one year if a CDL holder refuses
to take a breath or blood test and is suspected of driving while impaired
or under the influence.
