I'm not sure what you mean when you say that you got a DWI while your license was taken. A first offense DWI in Arkansas carries a 1 year suspension of your CDL. Subject to any other problems you might have with your driving record, you should be able to get your CDL back now since it has been over a year since your arrest. This also assumes that you complete the requirements set forth by Driver Control, such as paying your reinstatement fees, attending your alcohol class, etc. You should call Driver Control to sort this out.
