If you have a commercial driver's license in Pennsylvania, you could end up in a situation where you have a disqualification. According to the Department of Transportation, a disqualification is when you lose your privileges to operate a commercial vehicle. Essentially, you have your CDL suspended. Since most people use their CDL for employment reasons, this could be a serious issue. It is important to understand what leads to disqualification so you can avoid it.
Pennsylvanian residents who work as commercial drivers have a separate, special license called a "commercial driver license", or a CDL. Along with the unique privileges that come along with owning this license, there are also unique applications of DUI law and traffic offenses that apply.
