Pre Paid Legal Services CDLP:
Reviews by Truckers

Among the many plans offered by Pre Paid Legal Services (PPL) -- now called "LegalShield" -- is their Commercial Drivers Legal Plan (CDLP).

Disclaimer: Although we frankly admit that we have had a personal family plan through this firm since the mid-1990s, we have never had one specifically geared for commercial drivers. Any time that we have ever needed legal help with something in connection with our truck driving jobs, we have used our personal family plan, gotten a referral and paid the difference.

The way their plans work is captured on this page of LegalShield's website:

"Members have direct, toll-free access to their provider law firm, rather than having to comb through the yellow pages for a referral. Provider firms are carefully selected and the quality of service is closely monitored to maintain the highest of standards. Last year alone, our firms received over 2.1 million calls from our Members."

Since the change to, it is difficult to find information about their Commercial Driver's Legal Plan (CDLP) on their site. It is no longer listed under Individual plans.

When it was under Pre Paid Legal Services, the CDLP available in our home state of South Carolina provided these main benefits:

  • Tragic Accident Representation
  • Moving Violations
  • DOT And Non-Moving Violations
  • License Reinstatement
  • Property Damage Collection Assistance
  • Personal Injury Collection Assistance and
  • All Other Transportation Related Legal Work.

Our experience with Pre Paid Legal in the past taught us that legal help on in-state commercial driver matters for those who have a family plan but not a CDLP membership were handled by the law firm in the state, but out-of-state legal matters were referred to a qualified attorney in the target state.

What we're looking for on this page are reviews from those who have PPL's (or LegalSheild's) full-fledged Commercial Drivers Legal Plan.

If you are a professional truck driver and you either currently are -- or within the last 6 months have been -- a Commercial Drivers Legal Plan member with Pre Paid Legal Services or LegalShield, we invite you to review it on this page through the form below, answering questions such as these:

  • How long have you been a CDLP member?
  • If you were but no longer are a CDLP member, what factor(s) caused you to leave?
  • What are the top 3 reasons why you became a CDLP member?
  • Did you use any of the benefits that CDLP offered? If so, which ones?
  • How would you rate the quality of the benefits offered by CDLP ?
  • Do you think that your CDLP membership is/was worth the price you paid for it?
  • How did membership in CDLP save you money?
  • Would you become a CDLP member again and why?

Did you know that you as a professional truck driver can write a review -- like the one on or linked from this page -- to help other truckers in the worldwide trucking community? You can even earn money in so doing.
