Protecting Commercial Drivers' Licenses in Nevada 

Commercial drivers are held to a higher standard than other motorists on the road. This is because they operate large, heavy vehicles that can cause catastrophic damage and injury if an accident occurs. As such, commercial drivers are held to stricter standards when it comes to various traffic violations, including driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol.

In Nevada, commercial drivers face a different DUI standard than other motorists. If you're a commercial driver arrested for DUI in Las Vegas or Henderson, act fast and consult with a seasoned attorney.

At Goodman Law Group, we can help you understand your options and work to protect your commercial driver's license. Our legal team is highly skilled in this complex area of law, and we know what it takes to win.

Commercial Drivers & DUI in Nevada

Nevada takes DUI very seriously. If you are a commercial driver, you can face enhanced penalties if you are caught driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In fact, you can be charged with DUI for having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of just 0.04% or higher if you are a commercial driver. This is half the legal limit for regular motorists.

Additionally, the penalties for commercial DUI in Nevada are much more severe than those for regular DUI. Commercial drivers are held to a higher standard and are expected to obey all traffic laws and safety regulations. When they fail to do so, they can be held accountable.

What are the Penalties for a Commercial DUI in Nevada? 

If you are a commercial driver who is convicted of DUI, you can face various penalties, including those that affect your ability to work and earn a living.

Penalties for commercial DUI in Nevada include:

  • Up to 6 months in jail
  • Fines of up to $1,000
  • License suspension of 1-3 years
  • Ignition interlock device (IID) installation for 1-3 years
  • Permanent criminal record
  • Loss of employment

Additionally, if you are convicted of a second commercial DUI within 7 years, you can face a lifetime ban on your commercial driver's license.

    "I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for."
    I met with Mr. Goodman who answered all my questions and knew his stuff.  I decided to hire a less expensive attorney but was not happy with the progress ended up being a waste of money with the other guy. I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for. I should have gone with my gut reaction at the beginning that would have saved me anxiety, time, and money. Don’t make the same mistake.
