What Is Considered a DUI for Commercial Drivers?

The consequences of a commercial driver's DUI conviction can be devastating, as you could lose your job and your ability to earn an income. However, commercial drivers do not face the same penalties as regular drivers. For example, a commercial driver who has a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .04 percent or more could face a civil penalty, but not a criminal conviction. However, a commercial driver who has a BAC of .04 percent or more and who has caused a traffic accident could face a criminal conviction.

Penalties for Commercial DUI in Tennessee

A first-time DUI offense carries a jail sentence of up to 11 months and 29 days, a maximum fine of $1,000, and CDL disqualification for 1 year. However, if you were transporting hazardous materials at the time of the incident, then the disqualification period is 3 years.

Keep in mind, a second DUI offense can result in permanent CDL disqualification.
