Important News Regarding CDL's and Breath Tests

Posted by James Dunn | May 28, 2024

There is a significant change in Massachusetts RMV CDL suspensions due to recent guidance from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

In the past, the RMV would impose a one-year CDL suspension for a breath test refusal for first offenders and impose a lifetime suspension for second offenders that refused a breath test.

As a result of this new guidance, however, the Massachusetts RMV is now suspending CDL's for breath test failures as well as refusals.

Thus, for either refusing or failing a breath test, first offenders will incur a one year CDL suspension and subsequent offenders will incur a lifetime CDL suspension.
