Commercial Driver License Suspensions in Florida
The duration of a CDL suspension for driving under the influence depends
on the severity of the offense. Driving under the influence of drugs or
alcohol OR driving while in possession of an illegal substance typically
results in a
one-year license suspension. Drivers who refuse to take a BAC test also face anautomatic one-year suspension. If a driver is accused of DUI while transporting hazardous materials,
the suspension is increased to a minimum of three years.
Drivers who have their licenses suspended under these circumstances will
not be eligible for a hardship license, which could spell financial disaster
for a driver and their family. That is why it is important for drivers
facing criminal charges to
act quickly. In Florida, you may be able to request a hearing to contest your license
suspension through the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor
you must call within 10 days of your arrest. When you choose to work with Parks & Braxton, PA, we can guide you
through the entire process and ensure that your rights are protected.Fighting
