Can I lose my CDL (commercial driver license) for excessive speeding?

An individual can absolutely lose their CDL for a speeding violation. The law that governs CDLS, it’s called the FMCSA, which is the federal law, requires that if someone is convicted – which doesn’t always mean they were adjudicated guilty – of two serious violations in a three-year period, it is a mandatory 60-day revocation of their commercial drivers’ license. A speeding violation more than 15 mph over the limit is a serious violation, and, in certain circumstances, can result in someone losing their commercial drivers’ license.
