Some Causes of New York Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Suspension

by Seth Azria on 9/18/2018

A non - CDL driver will have their driving privilege suspended if they accumulate more than 11 points or have 3 speeding convictions in any 18 months period. New York has more strict suspension rules for drivers holding a Commercial Driver’s License (“CDL”).

The New York DMV will suspend a CDL for 60 days if the CDL holder is convicted of two “serious traffic violations” committed within a three year period arising from separate incidents regardless of whether the convictions occurred in New York State or outside of the state. The suspension period will be 120 days for three “serious traffic violations” in three years. (NY VTL §510-a)

Some common “serious traffic violations” are:

  • use of a handheld mobile telephone or a portable electronic device while operating a commercial motor vehicle,
  • speeding fifteen or more miles per hour over the established speed limit,
  • reckless driving
  • improper or erratic lane change
  • following too closely


A CDL will be suspended:

  • for 60 days for a failure to stop at a railroad gate crossing (NY VTL §1171)
  • for 60 days for obstructing highway-railroad grade crossing (NY VTL §1176)

The suspension will increase to 120 for the second conviction of VTL §§ 1171 or 1176 within 3 years and a full year for the third conviction in the same three year period.

So helpful and easy to work with

Mr. Habib and his staff helped me with a traffic matter and achieved an outcome that I was very happy with! I am from outside of the area and Mr. Habib explained the matter to me and told me about my various options, advising me on what I should do to handle the situation. I didn't even have to meet with him in person or attend any hearings, etc., it was all taken care of by Mr. Habib and his staff. I recommend Mr. Habib highly to anyone facing legal issues in NY. I am a very satisfied customer!

Great Attorney!

My Husband and I received 3 moving violations between the 2 of us, within a month. All were reduced to 0 point non moving violations. My husband has a horrible driving record and would have lost his license without the help of Mr. Azria. He is the only attorney i trust with my traffic tickets. Over the past year and a half he has successfully handled 4 tickets for my family. Excellent!

Reduced Speeding Ticket

David Bruffet of Azria & Bruffett handled my traffic case and managed to reduce my speeding ticket to a non-moving violation! This resulted in no points on my license and a substantial reduction in payments to the court. They have special promotions for college students so would recommend services for any college student who needs legal representation when it comes to speeding tickets.
