Houston Commercial Drivers License DWI Lawyer
If you have a commercial driver license (CDL), a DWI conviction will lead not only to the loss of your CDL but also the loss of your livelihood. To preserve your license and your job, you should select an experienced Houston DWI lawyer as soon as possible following a DWI arrest.
If you are convicted of drunk driving, you will not be able to receive an occupational driver license for a commercial driver license. Even if you are able to get your license restored following a conviction, you will not be able to purchase affordable commercial vehicle insurance. In other words:
DWI + CDL = no CDL
People with a CDL (Commercial Driver License) are also judged by a stricter standard when accused of drinking and driving in most states. If the driver holds a commercial driver license and is arrested while operating a commercial vehicle he/she is subject to the same punishments if the tests indicate an alcohol concentration of .04 or more.

The most recent legislature in Austin made changes that could adversely affect holders of CDL licenses. Commercial Driver license holders can no longer take Defensive Driving or Deferred Adjudication to clear moving violations from their driver’s records. This means that a minor traffic offense can affect your commercial driver license and your cost for commercial vehicle insurance.
