Thank you for your question. Be sure to go ahead and bookmark www.nateanswers.com for future questions.In Texas, anyone who has 2 serious traffic violations within 3 years can have their CDL suspended for a period of sixty days. Here is a list of what Texas considers a "serious traffic violation"- Speeding 15mph or more above the posted speed limit- Reckless driving- Improper or erratic traffic lane change- Following too closely- Any traffic violation in connection with a fatal crash (As of 9-1-01)- No Driver License- Unlawful display/possession of Driver License- Fail to display Driver License- No Commercial operator license- Expired Commercial operator license- More than one (1) DL in possession - Commercial Motor Vehicle- Domiciled over thirty (30) days - (CDL Operator who has resided in - Texas more than 30 days and has not obtained a Texas CDL)- Change lanes when unsafe- Failure to yield right of way when unsafe- Railroad violationsBased on what you have mentioned, assuming the expired inspection did not also include that your CDL was expired, neither of those qualify as a serious traffic violation.
I have already seen the above list during my web search.My brother has the CDL, he was driving my car.Are there any other concerns such as points, or other ways these tickets could effect his CDL?
No. Since those two offenses are not moving violations, there are no points accumulated. They should have no effect on his CDL.
Over 8 years of legal practice.
