If you are a commercial driver who holds a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) any hit and run charge can have serious CDL consequences. This includes incidents which occur in your personal, non-commercial vehicle.

Consequences of a Hit and Run for CDL holders

A first conviction for any hit and run charge will result in a 1 year disqualification of your commercial driver's license.

A second conviction for any hit and run charge will result in a lifetime disqualification of your CDL.

Commercial Drivers

Disqualification of CDL

If you have previously suffered a 1 year CDL disqualification and are convicted of hit and run you will receive a lifetime CDL disqualification.

These disqualifications apply even if the conviction would not result in a suspension or revocation of your regular, non-commercial driver's license.

For example, a commercial driver's license holder convicted of hit and run unattended from an incident in her personal, non-commercial vehicle would not lose her Washington driver's license but would be disqualified from driving a commercial vehicle for 1 year.

While you may qualify for an Occupational or other Restricted License during any period of suspension or revocation of your driver's license due to a hit and run conviction, such a restricted license would not allow you to drive a commercial vehicle.

The DOL has a lot of information on CDL disqualifications. You can find this information at their web site: DOL CDL Disqualifications.
