Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight.
The following offenses are disqualifying offenses:
So to answer your first question, if you are not charged with a felony (car theft, etc.) then you are not likely to lose your cdl.
Part two, you will need to pay the fine to get the impounded car back into his possession. If you pay the fees, then you can take the car back, unless it was involved in some drug investigation etc.
