Indiana CDL License and Traffic Laws

Veteran attorney understands strict CDLs rules, laws

Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders face higher standards than those with private driver’s licenses. An Indiana traffic violation conviction can cause major consequences for those who rely on a CDL to earn a living while driving a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV).

Lifting a CDL suspension can get you back to work

The Law Offices of Ryan E. Lackey offers experienced legal representation for drivers who have had their CDL suspended due to a violation. Reinstating your CDL and recovering your ability to earn a living are our paramount concerns so that you can get back to work.

There are many ways your CDL can be suspended or revoked, including:

  • Two serious traffic violations
    within three years involving CMV
    (60-day suspension)
  • Three serious traffic violations
    within three years involving CMV
    (120-day suspension)
  • Excessive speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Improper lane change
  • Tailgating
  • Driving a CMV without a CDL

CDL holders who operate commercial vehicles are subject to the same violation points as drivers of private vehicles. You are subject to suspension if you incur 18 or more active points within two years. Our knowledge of the Indiana traffic law system helps us fight for your right to return to work by reducing charges and removing points.

Legal representation is crucial for first and second offense charges

Indiana laws are strict for first or second offenses by CDL holders. If convicted of one of several first offense charges, you can lose your CDL for a year. Those offenses include:

  • BAC .04 or higher
  • Operating under the influence
  • Refusal of BAC testing
  • Leaving the scene of an accident involving a CMV
  • Driving a CMV with a suspended CDL

According to Indiana traffic laws, you can lose your CDL for life upon a second offense of such violations. We represent your best interests and fight to have your CDL reinstated so you can continue to drive and earn a living.
