Will a past suspended license prevent me from getting my CDL?

    Of course you do. Why would you think a CDL would have less restrictions?

    After you get your drivers license reinstated you might want to inquire with some of the less picky trucking companies to see if they are willing to hire you before getting a CDL as depending on why your license was suspended it might take several years before anyone will conceder hiring you.

    What was it suspended for?

    You will have had to have your DL reinstated for 18 months before you can apply. Being that you lost it to a DUI, you will have to wait 5 years from the reinstatement to apply.

    Ok I live in Alabama and have a valid driver's license I took my CDL road test and passed so when I went to get my license they said I was suspended in New York so my question is as long as I pay off the tickets in New York I should be good to go? The only thing is my permit is about to expire.
