DUI for Commercial Drivers

Trusted Reading DUI Attorneys Waiting to Advocate for You

If you lose your commercial driver's license (CDL) because of a drunk driving conviction, you may also end up losing your entire career — not to mention that some insurance companies will also terminate CDL holders after a DUI conviction.

Defending a CDL is a challenge that calls for a determined and resourceful lawyer. CDL suspension matters are handled by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), which has its own complex rules and regulations.

At Emkey Law Firm, our Berks County DUI defense lawyers understand the PennDOT requirements. We will also do everything possible to negotiate a favorable outcome with the district attorney. In some cases, it may be worthwhile to take the case to trial to help protect your commercial
driver's license.

ARD Isn't Enough – You Need Additional Legal Help

Many commercial drivers don't realize that if you get into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program, it will expunge your record. In other words, if you successfully complete the program, it will be as if the drunk driving offense never occurred. (It will stay on your record in the district attorney's office, but no employers or other individuals will be able to view it.)

However, even if you complete ARD and have your record expunged, the DUI will still count as an offense against your CDL. For this reason, it is critical to take action and not simply ignore the DUI charge. Consult an attorney at our firm to learn about your options.
