You will need to speak with a lawyer who regularly handles DUI cases and has a lot of experience with them. You will also need to provide a lot more information along with all the documentation you received regarding the citation you received. It is difficult to give good advice in this forum due to the lack of space to provide sufficient back and forth communication to flesh out all the details of your situation.
I suggest you do a Google search for DUI lawyers in your county, and try to contact one who has many years of experience handling commercial dui cases such as yours.
more info is needed.
make an appointment for a consult with a good LOCAL criminal/dui lawyer who can research and prepare the necessary papers.
A: The information you have seems accurate, a commercial license is suspended for one year hard, regardless of the vehicle you were driving. If you want a license before the one year is over, you can do it but you have to re-qualify for the Class A license when the year is up.
