Faced with Criminal Charges? Shelley D. Dwyer is Ready to Protect Your Constitutional Rights.

Redwood City Commercial Driver’s License DUI Attorney

Defending Commercial Drivers in the Bay Area

If you are a commercial driver and you’ve been charged with DUI, you need skilled legal representation right away. The state of California severely punishes commercial drivers who DUI, even more so than non-commercial drivers. Your job, future, and freedom are all at stake. If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and you are convicted of DUI, your CDL will be suspended. That means you will lose your job and become unable to work as a commercial driver until your license is no longer suspended. In addition, you may face heavy fines, probation, mandatory drug/alcohol education program, and even jail time. Contact Law Office of Shelley D. Dwyer for aggressive and experienced legal representation to help you fight these charges.

California DUI Laws for Commercial Drivers

If you have a CDL, you should know that California law considers you to be under the influence if your blood alcohol content is 0.04. For non-commercial drivers, their minimum BAC is much more lenient at 0.08. Also, you are considered to be a commercial driver regardless of the vehicle you are driving, even if it isn’t your commercial vehicle. The rules for CDL apply in all vehicles at all times. In other words, if you are driving a friend’s car and you are pulled over with a BAC of 0.04, you are considered to be under the influence and you will lose your CDL in addition to other penalties. This is why it is imperative that you retain a skilled and relentless DUI attorney in the Bay Area to protect your rights and fight for your freedom.

In addition to other penalties, commercial drivers who DUI:

  • Have their CDL suspended for one full year.
  • Are not eligible to apply for restricted driving privileges.
  • Will lose their CDL for life upon a second DUI conviction.
  • Will almost definitely have their insurance premiums increase significantly.
  • May not be rehired by their commercial driving company or hired by other companies.
