If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), chances are you drive for a living and rely upon the ability to get behind the wheel of a vehicle to pay your bills. Driving is your life and your livelihood. We know this and we are going to do everything we can to help you keep your license and your job.
In 2004, Ohio changed a law so that if you are arrested for a DUI/OVI in a regular vehicle, you will face sanctions for your commercial drivers’ license–up to a one-year disqualification of your CDL. For a second drunk driving offense, the penalty is a lifetime disqualification of your CDL.
