Understanding Traffic Convictions for Oklahoma CDL Holders
As a commercial driver in Oklahoma, the rules and regulations that apply to you are different than those that apply to regular drivers. Therefore, it’s important to understand the definition of a traffic conviction if you’re a commercial driver.
Under Oklahoma statute title 47, section 6-205.1, conviction means a non-vacated adjudication of guilt, which includes a non-vacated forfeiture of bail, a plea of guilty or no contest accepted by the court, and payment of any fine or court costs by the defendant.
It’s worth noting that even if you plead guilty or no contest and are not found guilty or convicted under normal terms, it still counts as a conviction for commercial drivers in the state of Oklahoma. This means that even a deferred sentence where you jump through hoops and get your case dismissed and expunged is still considered a conviction if you’re a commercial driver.
