If you are arrest for a DUI in your own personal vehicle ( but you have a CDL) can your CDLs still be revoked??
My husband was arrested february 2011 of a suspicion of a DUI(over a year ago). He was arrested in his own personal vehicle. I have not been able to locate his BAC. The officers that arrested him keep telling me they will have to contact me at a later date because it isn't in their system. Yet the lawyer we hired says that their is no way we can win our case that we should forfeit the DMV case. We feel as though we have been taken for our money and not given the answered we need. My husband has to have his CDLs in order to keep his job. This is his first offense. Does anyone have any advice for us? Should I get a new lawyer? Is it best to forfeit the DMV hearing.
Yes your CDLs can be revoked. CDL drivers are held to a much higher standard that regular licensees. You are always...

Personal DUI in WV with PA CDL?
first and foremost, i am a Pennsylvania resident with a CDL, but i rent a place in WV where the incident occurred. i had a minor accident in my personal car due to severe weather. it didn't cause any property damage or anything, just the car itself. instead of walking 1/4mi home like a smart person, i fell asleep in the car. well, someone called the police and i was arrested for "Aggravated DUI"(BAC 0.2x). ive done a lot of googling, and from what i understand this would probably be treated as a first offense, despite my three priors(two first offenses in PA 1999, one second offense in WV 2005). where im confused is with the license suspension part of it. WV has a DMV hearing and a criminal hearing separately. im told that even if i can get the criminal charges reduced, i still have to face the DMV part of it, which is nearly impossible to beat, and will result in a license suspension. however, PA doesnt have this seperate DMV hearing. if its dismissed/reduced in criminal court, its dismissed/reduced altogether. if i can manage to get the criminal charges reduced, how will this affect my Pennsylvania license?
While not a 100%, It’s highly likely that when the WV DMV takes your CDL privilege here for life (due to prior(s)),...

Can I get the WV DMV to remove the DUI-Court Conviction off my driving record?
I have a DUI from 2010 that was lowered to reckless driving charge in the courts and another DUI from 2011 that ended with a misdemeanor 1st time DUI charge in the courts. When I talked to the lady at the WV DMV and mentioned that the 2010 DUI had been lowered to a reckless driving charge in the courts, she told me the DMV doesn’t report court convictions. But on the WV DMV driving record both DUI’s are listed in the conviction section and also the withdrawal section, but the 2011 DUI misdemeanor is also listed in the withdrawal section as a “DUI- Court Conviction”. This is persistently misinterpreted as three (3) DUI’s rather than the two (2) actual DUI’s. Can I argue that the “DUI-Court Conviction” should not be listed on the driving record because the “DUI- Lowered to Reckless Driving” is not listed on the driving record? I would prefer to have the WV DMV remove the “DUI-Court Conviction” from the driving record all together!! Is that possible? If not, should the DMV also list the “DUI- Lowered to Reckless Driving”? I feel including the “DUI- Lowered to Reckless Driving” may even be more misleading and cause the report to be misinterpreted as four (4) DUI’s instead of two!

I was arrested for a DUI in California but hold a WV drivers license. Will WV DMV suspend my license?
I was arrested for DUI in California but hold a WV drivers license. I have not been charged at this point and my legal representation in California believes they can either get it dismissed or reduced to a "wet reckless". What action will WV take against my license prior to my conviction? What action will they take if it is reduced to a wet reckless charge? What steps should I be taking?
So long as you are not convicted of dui (or hold a CDL License), your WV drivers license will be secure. However, make...
