Ohio CDL Laws and OVI Do Not Mix

Ohio CDL Laws and OVI Do Not Mix

Commercial Drivers Beware: If you are an Ohio CDL operator, do not drink and drive. Period. Even if you are not “drunk”, “high” or “loaded”, Ohio’s BMV can, and will, disqualify a CDL driver who is alleged to have consumed alcohol and/or drugs of abuse. Ohio Law mandates a CDL holder is to be disqualified from operating a commercial vehicle upon a conviction for OVI and/or being charged with an administrative license suspension (ALS) pursuant to Ohio’s implied consent laws pursuant to Ohio Revised Code (ORC) §4506.15, ORC §4506.16 and ORC §4506.17.
