Commercial Driver DUI

CDL License GA Lawyer

Helping CDL Drivers Protect Their Ability to Make a Living

If you depend on a Georgia commercial drivers license (CDL) for your livelihood and have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI), you need an experienced and dedicated lawyer who is prepared to identify and pursue all opportunities to beat these serious charges.

I am George McCranie IV, a DUI defense attorney in Douglas serving clients throughout southeast Georgia. I understand the impact DUI charges can have on commercial drivers in Georgia, and I have a track record of helping clients get these charges dismissed or reduced.

Fighting the Serious Consequences of a CDL DUI

For noncommercial drivers, driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or above is considered DUI. If you are a commercial driver, this number is lowered to .04 if you were operating a commercial vehicle when you were stopped.

If your BAC was recorded at .04 or above on a breath test or blood test — or if you refused to take one of these tests — your CDL could be suspended or revoked.

If you already have a DUI conviction on your driving record — no matter how long ago the first offense occurred — and you are convicted of DUI for a second time even if the DUI was in your personal vehicle, you will be banned for life from obtaining a CDL and operating a commercial vehicle in Georgia.
