CDL Driver’s Responsibility to Provide Notification of Conviction / Suspension
You must notify your employer in writing of traffic violations (other than a parking ticket) committed in any motor vehicle within 30 days of conviction.
The notification of the violation given to your employer must include:
- Your full name and signature
- Your Driver license number
- The Date of conviction
- The Specific violation(s) committed
- Whether the violation was in a CMV
- The location where you received violation
You must also notify your employer in writing of any driver license suspension, revocation, cancellation, lost privilege or disqualification by the end of the business day following the day you receive notice of the action. Additionally you generally must notify your employer of any out-of-service order within twenty-four hours.
Do I Need a Lawyer for a Michigan CDL Ticket or CMV Violation?
If you have a CDL and you have received any type of violation while operating a CMV – in Macomb County, anywhere in Michigan or elsewhere – the consequences can be very severe. Losing your CDL can mean temporarily or permanently losing your job and your livelihood.
Because the points and penalties are different for CMV violations than they are for violations in non-commercial vehicles, many people (including many attorneys) do not understand what the penalties and fines are.
An experienced CMV / CDL lawyer can explain the points, fines, penalties and other consequences of your ticket, and help you get the best possible results. Call our CDL lawyers today for a free consultation if you have received a CDL ticket.
