Will I lose my CDL if I get a DUI/DWI in Minnesota?
Answered by: Gerald A. MillerGerald Miller, P.A. Phone: 612-440-4039
Yes. A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), Class A, Class B, and Class C driver’s license will be affected by a conviction. It’ll be affected, at a minimum, to the same degree that a Class D license will be affected. However, a CDL will often carry a greater length of revocation than a Class D license.
You can, and should, challenge a loss of your CDL just as you would a Class D license. An attorney can assist in filing the civil suit against the Commissioner of Public Safety.
If you happen to have been stopped in the commercial vehicle (bus, tractor, semi, etc.) while under the influence, you can be found guilty of a DUI or DWI at a level below 0.08 Blood Alcohol Content. A license loss can also be attributed to the event if you were operating a commercial vehicle while at a blood alcohol content at 0.04 or higher.
You can find more helpful information about your CDL on our Driver's License Issues tab on our website!
