Can I drive a Commercial Vehicle with an Occupational Driver’s License?

No. Under Texas law, an occupational license will not allow you to drive a commercial vehicle. Therefore, if you are facing a CDL suspension, it is very important that you fight the license suspension. Our CDL defense lawyers can provide you with a FREE consultation so you can better understand the options available in your situation.
