Driving Under the Influence


"California Vehicle Code section 23152(d) prohibits commercial license holders from driving a commercial vehicle with a blood alcohol level of .04% or higher. This applies even where the driver was not driving a commercial vehicle at the time.

The commercial license holder faces a 1-year suspension of the commercial license for a first offense, in addition to the other DUI penalties. The hazardous materials transport commercial license suspension is 3 years. For second or subsequent offenses, there is a lifetime ban on each type of commercial license. Such license holders may be able to obtain basic drivers licenses within the shorter period applicable to other drivers license holders.
