For someone with a Commercial Driver’s License, or CDL, the stakes are really raised when they get a traffic ticket. What would otherwise be a routine speeding ticket becomes a serious situation for a CDL holder. For many their CDL is their livelihood and they cannot afford to put that in jeopardy.
When you receive a traffic ticket and have a CDL take it seriously. Make sure you understand the ramifications of pleading guilty or getting court supervision. In most instances, getting court supervision doesn’t do you any good with your CDL and is treated the same as a guilty plea.
There are several ways in which a ticket can affect your CDL. For one, too many tickets in too short a period can suspend or revoke your CDL. Tickets can also affect your insurance rates. It could even affect your ability to get hired as prospective employers will be able to view your driving record and see your past tickets.
