Reminder for CDL
following information was taken directly from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety
Administration web site. It is not intended as a substitute for advice from
lawyers, employers, or union representatives. Please seek advice prior to making
any decisions which could adversely affect your employment.
Within 30 days of a
conviction for any traffic violation, except parking, a driver must notify
his/her employer, regardless of the nature of the violation or the type of
vehicle which was driven at the time.
If a driver's license
is suspended, revoked, canceled, or if he/she is disqualified from driving,
his/her employer must be notified. The notification must be made by the end of
the next business day following receipt of the notice of the suspension,
revocation, cancellation, lost privilege or disqualification.
Employers may not knowingly use a driver who has more than one license or whose
license is suspended, revoked or canceled, or is disqualified from driving.
Violation of this requirement may result in civil or criminal penalties.
