The most concerning punishment for being accused of a DUI is the loss of
a commercial driver’s CDL. Florida will suspend a driver’s
CDL if they are caught driving a commercial vehicle with a blood alcohol
content (BAC) of 0.04% or higher. The suspension will last about 1 year,
and the driver will be ineligible for a hardship license. If, however,
the driver was transporting hazardous materials at the time of the conviction,
the CDL will be suspended for a minimum of 3 years.
Requesting a Hearing
If your CDL was suspended for failing or refusing a BAC test, you might
be able to request a hearing to contest your suspension. You or your attorney
will need to request a hearing with your local Florida Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) Bureau for Administrative Reviews office
within 5 days of your arrest. Time is of the essence in this type of case.
