The failure to possess a valid DOT physical card would result in the suspension of your CDL for up to 1 year for the first offense and permanent suspension for second offense. It can also result in heavy fines against the company for which you are working, as they are liable for verifying your current physical card. Additionally, it will result in job termination for cause which would mean you would not be eligible for unemployment benefits.
