    ok guys, ive got a serious problem and would welcome any advice!

    Heres the short,
    Florida gave me my CDL in 2019,
    now 2020 Massachusetts is voiding(withdrawal) my CDL issued in FL for 2 DUI from 2006 and 2009 in FL! WTF

    In 2018 i looked into get my CDL, knowing i have a 10 and 15 year old DUI i diligently researched to see if i would be prohibited or disqualified from getting a CDL, And from all of my research and questions to DOT,FMSCA, local DMV i was told they would not be an issue if
    *not felonies or
    * within 5 years of application.

    In Jan 2019 i went to school and got my CDL no issues, bought a truck and have been running hard since, no issues in any state, no tix, no failed inspections.
    today, July 2020 i went to get my new medical card, i brought it to the FL DMV to update my file and received some crappy news. i was told that Massachusetts has a withdrawal on my FL CDL for 2 major offenses, of course the FL DMV had no idea what they were,

    6 hours on the phone with the Mass DMV and they are telling me i should never have been able to get my CDL because i have a DUI in 2006 and 2009,
    ------ten years before i applied for my CDL,
    ------on my regular class e drivers licence,
    ------no commercial vehicles involved.....

    In essence Mass DMV is saying that no one is allowed to have a CDL if they have 2 prior DUI. i believe this is false, but my CDL is now revoked nationwide... and I'm out of business,

    Anyone's words of wisdom here would be greatly appreciated!!
    Thanks.

    Don't know the answers to your questions, but I highly recommend getting a lawyer on this ASAP.

    So to make sure I am understanding this correctly you have nothing to do with Mass, DUI’s weren’t there, CDL not from there, you don’t live there, and they are just auditing CDL drivers from other states and violations they received in other states? How the heck can Mass suspend a Florida license for an offense that occurred in Florida?

    I know the CDL is a nationwide thing and I could certainly see Mass notifying Florida about violations that occurred in Mass but what business of theirs is this?

    pretty much, what happened aslo is i lived in mass as a kid 1978-99 moved to fl, got my duis here, then went back to ma for 2 years to help family 09-11, when i went back to mass they wer able to obtain my driving records for "historical" purposes which allowed them to see that i have those 2 dui. ive got a lawyer, and he explained whats goin on.
    about a year ago a mass cdl which should have been disqualified, ran down a group of bikers killing like 12 while driving drunk in new hampshire,
    mass was caught with thier pants down and is now scrambling to cancel anyone they can... for the full story see my other post here,,,,,
    Can any state pull your CDL for dui from 15yr before you got your CDL? They just did!!!!

    @carptransport nailed it. Typical bureaucratic knee jerk reaction in a feeble attempt to rectify their screwup.
