Getting Pulled Over With a CDL

Lafata Law LLC

For most CDL holders, your license means a way to make a living. Without it, you may be out of work. If you have a CDL and an officer issues a ticket, make sure to reach out to competent legal assistance. Whether you were in a your personal vehicle or you were in your work vehicle, the ramifications can be staggering.

What’s Next?


Call a Lawyer. Traffic court may seem like no big deal, but your CDL is your livelihood. Your commercial drivers license can be suspended much easier than a normal license. Two serious moving violations in a 36-month period will result in a CDL being suspended for a minimum of two months. Even if you were driving your personal vehicle at the time you were pulled over, there could be serious ramification to your license. Also, court supervision can result in the suspension of your CDL.

Should I Get an Attorney?

An attorney has a specialized knowledge of the law. This knowledge can help determine the correct path to minimize liability while keeping your license valid. Further, a trained professional can present valid defenses to the state or proper mitigation to the court. Lastly, a good attorney will make sure you do not get more serious charges or suspend your license.

Whether its your personal vehicle or not, having an attorney that understands your situation is key. Get an attorney that understands how to protect your license and your livelihood. Call the Illinois CDL attorneys at Lafata Law for a free consultation and review of your driving record.
