Will County traffic violations attorneysIn Illinois, there are three types of driver’s licenses: commercial driver’s license; chauffeur’s license; and personal vehicle driver’s license. To drive certain types of commercial vehicles, drivers are required by federal law to possess a commercial driver’s license (CDL). Commercial driver’s licenses are categorized as Class A, B, and C licenses depending on the weight of the vehicle and its load.

A commercial motor vehicle (CMV) driver must follow certain rules and regulations to maintain his or her CDL license. CDL violations carry significant penalties and can result in a loss of driving privileges.
