Drug charges have a heavy impact on how they will affect your life. If you drive a commercial motor vehicle, you could lose your livelihood by picking up a drug charge, a felony, or a charge related to driving (such as careless driving).
If you plea guilty to manufacturing, dispensing, or distributing a controlled substance or possessing a controlled substance with the intent to manufacture, dispense, or distribute, you will lose your license for life.
Other offenses that are related to the operation of a commercial motor vehicle will result in a one-year ban. So a DUI or a careless driving charge can result in a one year ban. If you pick up a second charge of careless driving, after pleaing to a previous one, you will face a lifetime revocation of your CDL.
If you have a CDL, you know how difficult it is to keep your license and your job. As a result, you need to protect your license and yourself by handling criminal charges properly and effectively.
