TEXAS CDL DUI LAWS

Individuals who hold commercial driver’s licenses and operate commercial vehicles are held to a higher legal standard because of the size of their vehicles and their cargo, whether it is people or materials. For example, a person who has a CDL and has a BAC of 0.04% or more in Texas is legally considered a drunk driver and may be arrested for a DWI.

CDL Suspensions

If a commercial driver commits a serious violation, his or her CDL may be suspended for a certain period of time, depending on the severity of the violation. Not having your CDL can make it difficult to earn a living and pay your bills since your job requires you to have authorization to operating a commercial vehicle.
