Q: Do you have a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) and Need Help With a Traffic Ticket?
A: As most CDL driver's know, traffic laws can be harsh on commercial driver’s that are found to violate Virginia’s traffic laws. It is difficult to work out a resolution that is favorable to the CDL driver, as the privilege to hold a CDL is more cherished by the courts than the normal operator’s license. Amongst the most significant differences, a trial court can no longer agree to a plea bargain that includes either the driver's safety course, or deferred adjudication or probation. Due to this dramatic difference the law creates between holders’ of a standard driver's license and a CDL driver's license, alleged offenders and attorneys must handle these matters seriously. If a privilege to hold a CDL is suspended, the driver will not be permitted to drive in accordance with that privilege until after the suspension period is ended and the CDL is properly reinstated. Jeh Hicks and the attorneys of Jarrell, Hicks & Waldman, PC have the knowledge and experience to help Virginia CDL drivers get the best result possible in their cases.
