How to Maintain a Clean CDL

Once you get a driving position, make sure you consult a traffic attorney about any alleged violations. One of the biggest threats to your commercial driver’s license (CDL) is traffic tickets. Even a minor infraction can get you terminated, and it will remain on your Pre-employment Screening Program (PSP) record for three years, making it challenging to get another high-paying job.

The turnover rate at large transport services and trucking companies is nearly 90 percent. Although some drivers are fortunate enough to sign on with a high-paying firm after a year of driving for a low-paying firm, just one traffic ticket conviction or paid fine could mean being overlooked for the high-paying driving jobs. Always consult a traffic attorney.
