Commercial Drivers DUI

Commercial Driver DUI Lawyers in Colorado

Drivers who hold a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) are required to follow additional laws and are held generally to a higher standard in operating their vehicles on Colorado roads. Being convicted of an alcohol or drug-related offense while driving either a commercial motor vehicle or a personal vehicle has serious consequences to the CDL holder's commercial driving privileges.

Worried about your commercial license? Call (720) 809-8310 for an initial consultation.

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.
