If you are a professional driver and are the owner of a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) in Delaware you are at risk of losing much more than the average person should you be convicted of DUI or other traffic offenses. Delaware CDL DUI laws are incredibly strict. For those possessing a CDL your driving privileges are directly related to your ability to get and maintain a job, support your family and pay your bills. Your CDL license can be suspended or revoked even if you were pulled over while driving your personal vehicle.
