As an employer, it is important to be aware and steer clear of disqualified drivers. The disqualification period is determined by a combination the severity of the offense and prior convictions. There are major offenses, serious traffic violations, and railroad-highway grade crossing offenses as well as violating out-of-service orders that can lead to disqualification. Here is a look at what to be aware of and how to avoid drivers who are repeat offenders.

Major Offenses

• Under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance
• Refusing a drug or alcohol test
• Leaving the scene of an accident
• Using a vehicle to commit a felony
• Driving with revoked or suspended CLP or CDL
• Driving during disqualification
• Causing a fatality due to negligence

Serious Traffic Violations

• Excessive speeding (15 mph over the limit)
• Reckless driving
• Improper or erratic lane changes
• Tailgating
• Traffic violations resulting in a fatal accident
• Driving without obtaining a CLP or CDL
• Driving without the proper CLP or CDL for the vehicle operated
• Driving without a CLP or CDL in the driver’s possession
• Texting or using a hand-held mobile phone while driving
