Commercial Driver CDL Attorney

Commercial Drivers License CDL Holders

Commercial Driver CDL Attorney

Are You a Professional Driver? Have a CDL? Need a Commercial Driver CDL Attorney?

If you hold a Commercial Drivers License CDL, you are held to a higher standard of driving conduct and safety, not only while you are operating a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) but also while you are driving your personal vehicle (non-CMV). In addition to obeying all of the traffic laws that non-CDL drivers must obey, you must also adhere to more strict federal regulations or else you risk losing your CDL privileges. A CDL Disqualification may result if a driver is administratively determined to have committed or gets a conviction for a “Major” or “Serious” Traffic Offense. Speak to an experienced Commercial Driver CDL Attorney to find out more about your legal rights and options.

If You Are a Professional Driver or CDL Holder, Call Us Today at (303) 625-9400 to Discuss Your Traffic Ticket or Driving Charge!

Important: If you are a CDL Holder, pay particular attention to the warnings throughout this website that have the above icon.

Commercial Drivers License CDL AlertCommercial Drivers License CDL Alert: Talk to Us Before Paying the Ticket!
Important: Depending upon the issuing police agency (including Colorado State Patrol and many County Sheriff’s Offices), if you pay the penalty assessment amount by mail, the original charge may be entered onto your driving history even though the assessed points are reduced. If you possess a Commercial Drivers License, be particularly cautious before you mail in a penalty assessment ticket because you might be admitting guilt to the original charge, which could result in a “Serious Offense” under the Commercial Drivers License CDL Program with a 30-day, 60-day or longer Disqualification in certain cases. Depending on the jurisdiction where the ticket is issued, an attorney may be able to get the charge reduced to a charge that is not a “Serious Offense. Regardless of whether you have a Colorado or Out-of-State driver’s license, be sure you fully understand the CDL consequences of mailing in a penalty assessment ticket before you do so. Call us today to discuss your case!

Non-Resident Violators Compact (NRVC)

Colorado is a member of the Non-Resident Violators Compact (NRVC), which is an agreement among 44 states regarding traffic tickets that have been issued to drivers who live outside the state where the violation occurred. The NRVC includes uniform procedures for processing traffic violations of non-resident drivers and an information database for maintaining records about the drivers.

Under the NRVC, if a CDL holder from another state receives a ticket for a moving traffic violation and the driver fails to take care of the ticket (by failing to appear in court, pay the fine amount, or adhere to requirements as specified in the ticket or summons), then the driver’s home state will suspend the driver’s CDL until the driver takes care of the outstanding ticket. Suspension of the CDL in the driver’s home state will remain in effect as long as the ticket remains outstanding. Discuss your case with a Commercial Driver CDL Attorney to find out more about the NRVC.

Out-of-State/Non-Colorado Residents Charged with a Colorado Traffic Violation

Some types of traffic violations are Traffic Infractions and do not require a court appearance. These types of tickets can be settled by mailing in a penalty assessment fine amount by the specified date listed on the ticket. If you ignore these types of tickets, serious consequences may result: A default judgment may be entered against you, the judgment may be sent to bill collections which will most likely increase the amount due, and your license in your home state may be suspended in accordance with the Non-Resident Violators Compact (NRVC). Contact a Commercial Driver CDL Attorney to find out more about your case.

Other types of traffic violations are Misdemeanor Traffic Offenses, Unclassified Misdemeanors or Felony criminal charges which require a mandatory court appearance. These types of tickets cannot be settled by a mailed-in payment of a fine amount. In some cases (more serious violations are excluded), an attorney may appear on your behalf in the court to hand your ticket, saving you the expenses and time of returning to Colorado. If you ignore these types of tickets, serious consequences may result: A warrant may be issued for your arrest; if you are picked up you may be extradited back to Colorado or be required to post a bond, and your license in your home state may be suspended in accordance with the National Driver Register (NDR) Problem Driver Pointer System (PDPS).
