Is there any way a person can get a dui (first ever offense) and keep their commercial driver license ?
My fiancé was taken into the jail last night for driving after having a few beers. I don't know if the cop told me the truth or was trying to scare me but he said he blew twice the legal limit into the breathalyzer. He just got his CDL's a month ago, and just started his new job. I'm waiting to get him out of the jail, I'm so worried he is going to lose his job that he loves and I'm almost certain that he will. Any and all advice would help greatly

How can I get my driver's license reinstated in the state of VA after DUID's but that have been over 4 years ago?
My situation is somewhat complex. I am a recovering drug addict(clean for a very long time, completed probation, etc). Years ago I got a "DWI:3rd offense, DRUGS w/in 10 years" on 2/14/2013, that was my hearing date, the offense was technically in Nov. 2011. I have a 2 year old, I live in an area that is not really equipped with public transport and live away from family that could get me to and from and my child to and from work and daycare. I JUST WANT TO WORK FOR MY FAMILY, THAT IS ALL I WANT A DL FOR. I have never really had a DUI resulting from alcohol except one MAYBE 2005..THE FIRST DUI. The DMV is really giving me a hard time as the VA DMV usually does. There is no way we can afford to pay thousands of dollars just to get me a restricted license. Can I go above the court and possibly write a state rep or something just so I can work, get to and from to the workplace. Thank you, any bit of advice is so appreciated.
A restricted license may be something to pursue
