Commercial DWI and its Penalties in Texas
Under Texas law, which is under the adherence of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), any commercial driver with a blood alcohol concentration or “BAC” of .04 or higher is classified as driving under the influence.
Commercial drivers arrested for the first offense of DWI are at risk of a maximum of 180 days in prison, a $2,000 fine, and, perhaps most importantly, a one-year suspension of their commercial driver’s license (CDL).
It is also worth noting that while the legal BAC limit for drivers of personal automobiles in Texas is .08 as per Texas law, commercial drivers charged with DWI while operating these vehicles face the same one-year CDL suspension. Furthermore, any further DWI conviction will result in a permanent suspension of your CDL.
Every day, commercial drivers are in charge of delivering high-value cargo to and from their designated locations. As a result, they are required to drive, even in a personal vehicle, in the most responsible way possible.

If certain conditions are met, the penalties for a commercial DWI can be harsher. If you were operating a commercial vehicle containing hazardous substances, your suspension will be three years. Additionally, any DWI offense after the first arrest involving controlled substances will result in a lifetime suspension of your CDL.
As such, the penalties for a DWI are particularly devastating as you will lose both your primary method of transportation and your livelihood. You must seek legal help immediately after an arrest to have an increased chance of fighting charges that threaten your way of life.
Our lawyers will be able to explain exactly what your charges are in your specific case and will know what’s necessary to navigate your situation and build your defense.

- There were errors with your blood or sobriety tests.
- Your rights were violated.
- Your Miranda rights were not read.
- You were unaware that controlled substances were present in the vehicle (in drug cases)
