CDL Traffic Ticket Points

Q.: You must make sure that your CDL traffic ticket points are always kept to a minimum. Ideally, you should have no points on your CDL. You are considered a negligent operator of a commercial motor vehicle when your driving record shows the following point counts:

A.: 4 points in 12 months.

Explanation: You are considered to be a “negligent” commercial vehicle operator if any of these point totals apply: 4 points in 12 months, 6 points in 24 months, or 8 points in 36 months. A fine may be bad enough should you get a ticket, but points can affect your livelihood. You should dispute any tickets you receive when operating any type of vehicle, if possible.
