Commercial DUIs in California

Ventura DUI Lawyer Provides Uncompromising Legal Defense

Professional commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of others on the road. Large vehicles can cause serious accidents, especially when the driver is acting in a negligent manner. Driving under the influence of alcohol is considered a negligent action that can result in serious penalties for the offender. According to California state and federal law, people who are operating commercial vehicles have an especially high standard.

Speak with one of our Ventura DUI lawyers at Wilfert Law, P.C. for the information you need regarding your case.

What are California's penalties for a commercial DUI?

If the result of a chemical test, whether a blood or breath test, show a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.04% or higher, the commercial vehicle driver may have his or her driver's license suspended by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The driver's license can be suspended for 4 months for a first offense and a year for more than 1 offense within a 10-year period.

Under California law, anyone charged with a first-time DUI is prohibited from operating a CMV for at least one year. Refusal to submit to a chemical test while driving a CMV can result in licensing sanctions because of California's implied consent law. Commercial vehicle drivers convicted of a DUI charge may face the loss of his or her job if a commercial driver's license is required. For CMV drivers who are tested to have a blood alcohol content level greater than 0.01% are considered out of service for 24 hours.
