Commercial drivers may not operate a commercial vehicle with a .04% or more Blood Alcohol Level. If they are convicted of a DUI offense operating a non-commercial vehicle:
(1) First Offense will result in a one year loss of commercial driving privileges;
(2) Second Offense will result in a lifetime loss of commercial driving privilege.
There are many ways to keep commercial driver’s license despite charged with a DUI. However, one must successfully navigate both DMV and Court or get a Not Guilty of Driving with a .08% or more BAC. If one wins a DMV Hearing and is convicted of a non-DUI offense, there will be no loss of license or commercial license.
