IMPORTANT: Since 2001, the FMCSA mandates that states suspend the CDL of any driver for various driving infractions including, but not limited to failure to obey a railroad signal (60 days) and leaving the scene of an accident (one year).

In fact, there are a multitude of offenses that can result in suspension of a CDL. Click here for a table of offenses that result in a suspension
