If I'm disqualified for life from another state can I have that removed? or am I able to drive in my home state?

I think that you are just disqualified from getting a cdl IN that state....but i think you can get your cdl in any other state, and drive thru the disqualified state...

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

I'm trying to find out the same thing. Please let me know what you find out. My post is Can I get a CDL if my DUI’s were in a state that disqualifies you from obtaining one?

A CDL is not just limited to your state. If you had a Class A license, and you were licensed for interstate commerce , and you were disqualified for life, I don't believe it is just limited to that state. It goes right along with the fact that you can't have CDL licenses in multiple states. Therefore, if you are disqualified for life, you are just disqualified. The state doesn't even matter, as I understand it

I am very new to this. From studying the CDL stuff, I think if you get a lifetime disqualification for whatever reason, it is just that. You are disqualified in all states. I think that is the point of the interstate commerce stuff. Stiff penalty to try and deter the actions. Not the answer you want. I surely could be wrong. But this is my understanding of the law.

I don't agree that you are disqualified from all states, cuz all states have different laws. BUT the easy way to find out is go to your state and ask them.Tell them that you have a disqualification in another state, and ask if that will stop you from getting a cdl in your home state...sounds pretty easy to me...one explanation, one question, and one answer...

Just curious, if you were disqualified say in VA. If in fact, you were able to get a CDL in NC. What happens if you have to drive through VA? Just wondering. From reading, I thought the 1983 interstate commerce laws were set up for just this reason. They don't want a person to get disqualified in one state and then go to the next state and obtain a CDL. If that is the case, then you could in theory have 48 chances to screw up. I am not trying to challenge you, I am trying to learn!
