If you make your living as a commercial driver, DUI can severely affect your profession and your future.
First Offense Penalties
If you are a CDL driver, a conviction for a first DUI will result in a one-year license suspension. (This will be bumped up to three years if you were transporting hazardous materials.) This means you will be out of work for at least a year. However, the story does not end there. Even after the license revocation is over, you will have a very hard time finding work. This is because, for liability issues, trucking companies avoid giving jobs to drivers with DUIs on their record.
Second Offense Penalties
A second offense for a CDL driver means a lifetime CDL ban. You will have to find another career. With the job market the way it is, this may be a very difficult thing to do. If you hold a CDL license in Nevada, your life and livelihood is at stake with a DUI charge. You need an experienced DUI attorney who knows the law and science needed to defend these cases. I have represented many CDL drivers and been successful in securing their professional future. Please call (702) 656-0808 to find out more.
