Disqualification of the Commercial Driver's License
Under Florida Statute Section 322.61, Florida law requires a one-year disqualification for alcohol-related convictions in a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) if convicted of any of the following offenses:
This one-year disqualification is in addition to any suspension or disqualification required for a DUI conviction under Florida Statute Section 316.193.
A permanent disqualification is required for a second or subsequent conviction of any of the above offenses arising out of separate incidents from operating a commercial motor vehicle.
