Will I lose my CDL if I have a warrant?
According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), you will be disqualified from holding a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) or a Hazardous Material Endorsement (HME) until a warrant charged to you for any of the following felonies is released:
- Unlawful entry into a seaport
- Assault with intent to murder
- Kidnapping or hostage taking
- Rape or aggravated sexual abuse
- Unlawful possession, use, sale, manufacture, purchase, distribution, receipt, transfer, shipping, transporting, delivery, import, export of, or dealing in a firearm or other weapon
- Dishonesty, fraud, or misrepresentation, including identity fraud
- Immigration violations
- Violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) under 18 U.S.C. 1961, or a comparable State law, other than any permanent disqualifying offenses
- Distribution of, intent to distribute, or importation of controlled substance
- Any crime involving a severe transportation security incident
- Improper transportation of a hazardous material
- Unlawful possession, use, sale, distribution, manufacture, purchase, receipt, transfer, shipping, transporting, import, export, storage of, or dealing in an explosive or explosive device
- Conspiracy or attempt to commit any of the above crimes
If your warrant is over traffic issues, such as excessive speeding, it’s not the law but your employer you need to worry about. Many employers won’t tolerate high risk drivers due to company insurance costs. Nor will they retain drivers who can’t work due to being in jail over their arrest warrants.
