Your CDL is going to be effected. Even a minor traffic violation has a negative effect on a CDL, so the DUI offense, even though it is out of State, is going to be effected. Even if the court did not take any action when it imposed sentence, the State of of MD can and may be placed on notice of the DUI and take administrative action and suspended the CDL. They would need to give you notice of this but you can continue to check its status and drive as long as it is not suspended and there is no other evidence indicating that it is. I know it is not what you were hoping to hear but typically, even out of state DUI offenses are reported back to the home state.

It is important to keep in mind that in your case there are three possible ways for the CDL to be suspended. The first is thorough court action but you shared it was not part of your sentence. The second is through State action and for that to be done this would need to be reported from Washington and then Maryland could take action as well but you would received notice. The final way would be through you employer and their decision to simply suspend you from driving as a result of the DUI and company policy. Typically when driving is within the scope of your employment and an employee obtains a dui the company takes action and you may have a duty to report this. Now, if they will not take action if you take the course that is at their discretion but I have never seen a CDL remain in effect when a party obtained a DUI conviction
