Commercial Driver DUI Who You Hire Makes a Difference

Commercial Driver DUI Charges in Seattle

Get Help from Our Seattle CDL DUI Lawyers

A DUI offense under any circumstances can be devastating, but as a commercial driver, it has the potential to seriously impact your career and livelihood. Since commercial vehicle drivers are held to stricter standards when driving, Washington State imposes harsh consequences for commercial drivers charged with DUI.

Our team of Seattle CDL DUI attorneys understands the concerns you are facing. We are committed to fighting for you as an individual, and don't see you as just another case to tack onto our resume. When your commercial license is involved, you are facing more than a suspension— your livelihood is at risk.

There is simply too much on the line! With our 24-hour, on-call lawyer, you never have to wait to obtain counsel from Guadagno Law, PLLC.

What Will Happen To My Commercial Driver's License?

Unlike other DUI offenses in Washington, the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) for a commercial driver is .04 percent and below. Anything at or above .04 is considered against the law.

  • Along with other possible penalties imposed by Washington for a DUI charge, including a maximum of 1 year in jail and fines of up to $5,000, a DUI offense as a commercial driver could have a drastic impact on your future.
  • For a first time offense, Washington law requires the immediate suspension of your commercial driver's license (CDL). If this is your second offense, your CDL will be suspended for life.
  • It is especially important to note that even if you are not driving a commercial vehicle when charged with a DUI, you are still liable for the suspension of your CDL.
  • After being arrested for a DUI offense, you typically have just 20 days to request a hearing with the Washington Department of Licensing (DOL). After this 20 day window, your request will be denied.
