Driving Drunk With a Commercial Drivers License in Alaska

In Alaska, bus drivers, truck drivers and other driving professionals are held to a higher standard than non-commercial drivers when it comes to driving under the influence as established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). A BAC of 0.04% or more constitutes driving under the influence for an individual holding a commercial driver’s license. This is below the normal BAC of 0.08% for all other motorists. The penalties for a DUI while driving a commercial motor vehicle are identical to penalties for a regular DUI except that the revocation period for your CDL is one year for the first offense and a lifetime revocation for your second or subsequent offenses. Lastly, if you were transporting hazardous materials while convicted with a DUI, you will not be able to drive a commercial vehicle for three years.
