How long after getting a DWI must I wait to get a CDL in Texas?


  1. Andy says:

    I would hope never… The last thing we need is a drunk driving around a 70ft long 40 ton missile.

  2. Chuck says:

    I would imagine when your probation is over.

  3. Leto A says:

    the c in cdl stands for california, just thought I’d point that out.

  4. bcnu says:

    Under Texas law, a person convicted of DWI is disqualified from driving a commercial vehicle for one year from conviction, assuming it was non-commercial vehicle being driven.

    If you HAVE a CDL when convicted of DWI, then it will be suspended for one year, minimum. Upon second DWI you will be disqualified for life. Also, once you have a CDL the maximum blood alcohol content permitted (when pulled over for DWI) is 0.04 percent in a commercial vehicle and 0.08 in any non-commercial vehicle and the minimum suspension is THREE years for first offense.
