Hello all,

Recent employment opportunities going sour has made me decide now is the time to finally get into trucking.

My record has one ticket on it and that is 15 mph over the limit. Im not going to bore you with how and where I got the ticket. My point behind this post is to let all know which companies do not cringe at the mere mention of my ticket. Thus far I have spoken with wil trans and they said anything 15 and over needs to be 3 years old.

If that is your ONLY moving violation in the last 5 years, plenty of Companies will give you a shot. But, if that is the "worst" one, you may have some difficulty. You only mentioned Wil Trans. I would recommend that you look into all of the Megas that offer Company Sponsored Training. Some are more lenient than others. Good luck!

Company Sponsored Training:

A Company-Sponsored Training Program is a school that is owned and operated by a trucking company.

The schooling often requires little or no money up front. Instead of paying up-front tuition you will sign an agreement to work for the company for a specified amount of time after graduation, usually around a year, at a slightly lower rate of pay in order to pay for the training.

If you choose to quit working for the company before your year is up, they will normally require you to pay back a prorated amount of money for the schooling. The amount you pay back will be comparable to what you would have paid if you went to an independently owned school.

Company-sponsored training can be an excellent way to get your career underway if you can't afford the tuition up front for private schooling.

That last sentence has me curious....."bore" us with the details. Were you doing 80 in a 65 or 90 in a 35. Fifteen over covers a broad territory! Was there a Reckless Driving attached? Enquiring minds want to know.

I was in georgia doing 50 in a 35. I saw the sign for 45 but never the sign for 35. The sheriff was not too concerned with that though.

I don't think it presents too big of a problem then. There is a feature on this site where you fill out one application and Brett magically transmits it to billions of Trucking Companies throught the Galaxy. Well........probably not that far and wide. Check the home page for the Trucking Jobs tab. It's there somewhere.

CR England has run me through their entire recruiting spill and has me set up to do school on the 16th of January, the DOT physical tomorrow. All of that moved a bit faster than I expected.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.
