KANSAS CITY CDL DWI ATTORNEY

A Better Law Firm for Bankruptcy, Family Law and Traffic Matters

 

What if I have a CDL or would like to obtain one in the future?

First, you need to understand that it does not matter if you were driving a commercial vehicle or your private vehicle when you were stopped for driving while intoxicated or driving while under the influence. The legal limit for driving a noncommercial vehicle under the influence is .08% while if you were driving a commercial vehicle it is .04%. Suspension

The following major offenses will impact your ability to drive a commercial vehicle. Major offenses include: operating while intoxicated, operating under the influence of a controlled substance, refusal to test for intoxication, leaving the scene of an accident, operating a CMV while the CDL is disqualified, revoked, suspended, or canceled and causing a fatality through negligent or criminal operation of a CMV.

Suspension periods are different if you were driving a commercial vrs. noncommercial vehicle when you were stopped and the chart below reflects the suspension/revocation times for each.

 

Commercial Vehicle

Noncommercial vehicle

1st offense

1 year

Lifetime

2nd and subsequent offense

60 days*

120 days **

*2nd offense within 3 years **3rd offense within 3 years

NOTE: The computation of time from offense to offense is the date of the ticket and not the date of conviction.

If your license is suspended or revoked, you cannot drive any commercial vehicle during the suspension or revocation period but you may apply for limited driving privileges to operate private, noncommercial, vehicles.

    It's tuff finding a good reasonably prices and reliable lawyer. For years I bounced around from lawyer to lawyer using different ones for different services. Eventually I stopped all of that and chose to use Law in Kansas City for all of my legal matters due to their reilabilty and professionalism. They are prompt at gettingback to me with any questions and always have amazing info on my subject. This law firm is very good, I own rental properties and need legal help quite often with tennants.
