Penalties for Commercial DUI
Georgia has strict laws and penalties regarding DUI and commercial drivers.
If you are a CDL holder and have been accused of DUI, you will likely
have your license suspended for a minimum of one year. Unlike regular
drivers, which must have a BAC below .08, CDL holders must have a BAC
below .04, a much stricter regulation. You could even be operating a private
vehicle at the time of your charges.
If you receive a second conviction, you will likely have your CDL disqualified
for life. However, if you took a breathalyzer test, you may be eligible
to get your CDL reinstated in just 120 days, so long as you have no previous
convictions with the past 5 years.
Other penalties you may face include:
- Having your personal license suspended/revoked
- Jail time or probation
- Restitution to any injury victims
- Mandatory community service
- Mandatory alcohol education program
- Hefty fines and increased insurance rates
