Compared to other drivers, those holding a Commercial Driver License (or CDL Class A, B, or C) are held to stricter Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) standards, and face tougher penalties, while operating a vehicle that requires a CDL license.
A single conviction for DWI, DWAI, or having a .04 percent or higher BAC requires a minimum 1-year suspension of the driver’s license (3-years, if driving a vehicle that requires hazardous materials placards).
A second conviction within the driver’s lifetime results in permanent revocation, with a possible waiver after 10 years.
A third conviction results in a permanent revocation with no possibility of ever getting it back.
