Case #: 2015 CT ****
Our client purchased and converted an older shuttle van into a larger passenger van for a taxi type service. He was stopped when the Deputy noticed how many people were crowded into the van. Based on the amount of people in the van and the total weight, our client needed a commercial driver's license, but only possessed a standard Class E license. The Deputy cited our client with a criminal charge for driving without a commercial driver's license. We immediately began working with our client in helping him decide if he wanted to keep his business or shut it down based on this information. When he decided he wanted to keep running his company, we helped him enroll in the proper classes to obtain his commercial driver's license and worked with the Judge to give him additional time to take and pass all of his tests. Once our client passed his tests and got his provisional commercial license, the State dropped the criminal charge against him.
