Commercial Driving Traffic Offenses

Those who hold a commercial driver’s license can face disqualification or suspension of their CDL for a variety of violations, including those committed while driving a personal vehicle.

  • If a person loses their license to operate a personal vehicle due to a serious speeding violation, they may lose their CDL for a minimum of 60 days and a maximum of 120 days.
  • If a person loses their license to operate their personal vehicle due to an impaired driving violation, they may lose their CDL for 12 months. A second impaired driving conviction will result in a permanent disqualification of a CDL.

If a person commits a traffic violation while operating a commercial vehicle, they can face a range of penalties depending on the seriousness of the violation. A “major violation” will almost certainly result in a disqualification of a person from having a commercial driver’s license. A first-time major violation will result in a 12-month disqualification of a CDL. The second conviction of a major violation will result in a lifetime disqualification.

Arizona considers the following to be major violations concerning a CDL:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol with a blood-alcohol level of .04% or higher.
  • Driving a commercial vehicle on a suspended or revoked CDL.
  • Leaving the scene of an accident.
  • Refusing to submit to an alcohol test.
  • Using a vehicle in the commission of a felony.
  • Causing a fatality due to negligence while operating a commercial vehicle.
