DUI – Protect Your License
Please DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE.
California state law requires that a class B commercial driver maintain valid insurance on all personal vehicles that are driven. If you are cited by California Highway Patrol or a city police officer for not providing proof of insurance and/or you are unable to provide proof of coverage for the specific day that you were cited in a court of law, you will be considered uninsured. You will be subject to losing your class B license for one year.
You may obtain proof of insurance through your insurance provider. If you do not have any auto coverage insurance, please call the Civil Service Employees Insurance Group at (800) 282-6848, extension 1. You will be referred to an agent in your area.
