How do I get my CDL back after suspension?

Drivers who have their commercial driver’s license suspended are subject to the regulations within the state where the license was issued as well as federal regulations through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

To reinstate your commercial driver’s license, you will need to comply with the requirements in your state. These requirements vary from state to state, but usually include: waiting out the duration of the suspension, meeting any applicable court requirements including taking any classes, retaking and passing the commercial driving and knowledge tests, and paying a reinstatement fee.

In addition to the fines in your state, you may be required to pay penalties and fees determined by the FMCSA and/or court-ordered fees. There are no standard rules for every situation, since every case is handled individually. Your case will be tried in court, so it’s important to have qualified legal representation on your side as soon as your license suspension takes place. In most cases, our team can help you save money in fees and reduce the long-terms effects on your driving record.
