As an attorney specializing in traffic violation cases, I often come across individuals who hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and have found themselves facing a moving violation charge in the state of Florida. Unlike non-commercial drivers, CDL holders are excluded from attending driving school as an option for resolving their traffic infractions without points. These unique challenges faced by CDL holders require alternative strategies to effectively navigate their traffic violation case.

What you need to know about your speeding ticket.

Top Secret

What No One Else Will Tell You

We concentrate on getting our clients no points and no school. Dismissals are great, and we get them, but it is harder these days because of tickets being more automated. There are the exceptions which we catch. For example, no description on certain tickets that require it would be dismissed.

Also, if school is ordered, it is normally because of a high speed or multiple tickets in the past few years. This can be advantageous in negotiating with the State for no points, and it wouldn’t count against your 5 lifetime elections.

The worst hidden cost of getting points is the increase in insurance premiums. For years I’ve told people that they could raise your rates for up to 3 years but the last insurance quote I received they asked for 5 years of look-back to determine the insurance rates!


Options Crossroad

Your Legal Options

If you have received a ticket as a result of a speeding, the following are your legal options:


Pay your ticket and receive 3-6 points on your license, fines ranging from $100-$1000, and incur higher insurance premiums.


Pay your ticket and attend Traffic School, you will incur a fine and use one of your five lifetime chances to take this option. You are only allowed to take one class withing a 12 month period.


Contest the ticket yourself. Familiar yourself with the Florida Rules of Traffic Court, court procedure, and what are valid and invlaid defenses.  You will have to know what to say, and sometimes more importantly, what not to say.


Hire our law firm to Fight Back for a chance at a dismissal, no points, and no traffic school. You would also not have to appear in court.


Understanding the CDL Exclusion:

Florida law places commercial drivers in a distinct category when it comes to traffic violations. While non-commercial drivers are typically afforded the opportunity to attend driving school to mitigate penalties, CDL holders are excluded from this option. This exclusion applies regardless of the nature of the offense, ranging from speeding violations to more serious infractions. It also applies whether you were in a commercial vehicle or your personal vehicle.

Challenges Faced by CDL Holders:

The exclusion from driving school can pose significant challenges for commercial drivers, as their livelihood often depends on maintaining a clean driving record. Convictions or excessive points on their driving records can lead to a suspension or revocation of their CDL, resulting in severe professional consequences. CDL holders must carefully approach their traffic violation cases to minimize the potential impact on their careers.

Alternative Strategies for CDL Holders:

Consultation: Seeking legal counsel is crucial for CDL holders facing traffic violations in Florida. Our experienced attorney can assess the specifics of the case, identify potential defenses or mitigating factors, and devise a strategic plan to protect the client’s CDL and driving privileges.

Contesting the Citation:

Challenging the citation itself is really a no brainer because the alternative is paying it and getting points. A skilled attorney can investigate the circumstances surrounding the alleged offense, review police reports, and gather evidence to build a strong defense. This approach aims to prevent a conviction altogether, sparing the CDL holder from the detrimental consequences associated with it.

Negotiating Reduced Charges:

In some instances, negotiation with the State may be possible to obtain reduced charges or penalties. We try to leverage our expertise to engage in plea bargaining, potentially securing a resolution that minimizes the adverse effects on the CDL holder’s driving record and professional standing.

Exploring Dismissal Options:

If procedural errors or other legal deficiencies exist in the case, we can seek dismissal of the charges. An exhaustive examination of the evidence and thorough knowledge of Florida traffic laws are vital in pursuing this avenue successfully.

CDL holders in Florida face distinct challenges when dealing with moving violation traffic cases due to their exclusion from attending driving school. Understanding the implications of this exclusion and seeking professional legal representation are critical steps in effectively navigating such situations. By consulting our experienced attorney, CDL holders can explore alternative strategies, including contesting citations, negotiating reduced charges, or pursuing dismissals, to protect their driving record and safeguard their professional careers.

I had a very good experience with the Ticket Fighter and attorney Sergio Cruz. After a very poor traffic stop encounter with an Orange County Deputy, the Ticket Fighter got everything cleaned up and off my driving record, no fees, fines, points or school.

I had a ticket and they got it dismissed! It was well worth my money. Everyone was so nice and helped me through the process since this was my first ticket, I didn't know anything. I really appreciated the time and patience that was given to me.

Highly recommend The Ticket Fighter, Sergio Cruz Law Firm's service. Mr. Cruz helped fight off a speeding ticket that my friend who was in a serious need, hurried to a gas station for a use of a toilet due to an upset tummy in the middle of night driving from a fishing trip. The Ticket Fighter fight off the unreasonable speeding citation. Thanks Mr. Cruz for your service! Gratefully yours!

I have a CDL and I cannot afford any points on my license at all, I have a clean license and I wanted to keep it that way. I probably shouldn't say this, but I was willing to pay a lot of money to fight this ticket that I got for a minor accident that was not my fault but the officer on scene gave tickets to both myself and the other vehicle. Mr.Cruz took my case for a $99 fee, which I thought was just a down payment and fees were going to be added. I just got a letter today that stated that my case had been dismissed for a $99 fee that I paid Mr Cruz. I have read the reviews and I didn't honestly believe it was going to be this easy and I know this sounds ridiculous but it was that easy. Hopefully Mr Cruz and I never talk again, but if I do get another ticket he is the only one I would even consider. Thank you brother I appreciate it you saved the day! Steve
