The DUI penalties for citizens of Florida are harsh, and the DUI penalties for people caught driving a commercial vehicle under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances are even worse.
The blood alcohol content level for a non-commercial driver has to be a .08 or over for that person to be presumed DUI. For a commercial driver, a blood alcohol content level of .04 or over can result in DUI charges. Further, if you are driving a commercial vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance, refuse to give a breath, blood or urine test or are even in possession of alcohol or a controlled substance, you will lose your commercial driver’s license for one year. If you are charged with a second or subsequent DUI, you will permanently lose your commercial driver’s license. Further, if you refuse to take a blood alcohol content test or are in possession of alcohol or any controlled substance, you are automatically disqualified from obtaining any hardship license for commercial driving purposes. After one year of losing your license you can pay the required fees and reapply for a Commercial Drivers License.
