At Jonathan Blecher, P.A., I don't just seek to defend your case; I work to preserve your driving privileges and your profession so that you can move on from this challenging time.
In Florida, the legal minimum blood alcohol content (BAC) level for any commercial driver is 0.04%. If a law enforcement officer determines that you are driving with a BAC level over 0.04%, you may be disqualified from driving a commercial motor vehicle for a year and be required to pay a $60 license reinstatement fee. If you were transporting hazardous materials when charged with the DUI offense, you could face a three-year license disqualification period.
If you have a CDL and have been arrested for DUI, you could be subject to serious penalties under state law. A first CDL DUI offense can result in a disqualification from operating any commercial motor vehicles for at least one year. A second CDL DUI offense can result in a permanent license revocation with no possibility of obtaining a hardship license.
Other consequences can include:
