New York Commercial Driver’s License Attorney
What Is the Definition of a Commercial Vehicle in NY?
You need a commercial driver's license to drive a commercial motor vehicle in New York. If you drive such a vehicle without a commercial license in NY, you may go to jail or be fined up to $5,000.
Commercial vehicles are defined as:
- A vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating of 26,001 pounds or more
- A vehicle designed to carry 16 or more people, such as a bus
- A vehicle which requires hazardous materials placards
In the case of a driver with a commercial driver's license in NY, when your license is endangered, you will be unable to work and earn a living. If you have accumulated too many points on your driving record, your license can be suspended by the DMV, essentially putting you out of a job. Before that happens, we advise you to contact our firm to set up a free, initial consultation with a defense attorney to discuss the matter of your traffic offense and how it will affect your commercial driver's license. After a review of your situation, we can advise you on what to expect and how we can help.
