I got two tickets out of state recently One of them being for no insurance on my vehicle . My car is always sitting so I had no insurance on it my home state also doesn’t require liability insurance and I didn’t think I’d be driving for a while . Sure enough I went out of state in my car and got pulled over with no insurance . I have a really good lawyer but I’m still feeling like all hope is lost. I’m facing a one-year revocation of my license. Would it even be worth it for me to get my CDL back in a year or would nobody hire me? I’m ready to give up

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

FYI, this guy is Kash. Just changed name and removed avatar.

Eric, you've had a lot going on recently - mostly negative things. I'm going to try not to repeat what has been consistently said in your other threads, but it's true. With all you've done recently, honestly, I feel that this industry may not be for you. And I mean this in the nicest way possible, but it's the rough truth. You have numerous accidents under your belt, nearly none of which you've owned up to. Your trucking resumé currently doesn't look that good. After a year without a license (by the way, do you mean CDL or normal license?), you'll have to go through the entire training process again. That was the part you didn't like; You'll have to go through it again. Also, restarting after an entire year without doing it means opportunity for as many accidents as you've had. Your record is not very clean at all currently, think of how bad it would be with twice that.

Honestly, I'd say no, to answer the question. sorry.gif

P.S. You already posted a thread about this and got some good advice. Use some of that too.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

You just said

So it isn't going to be clean for long, is it? I think you'd better chill out.

You're an absolute disaster on the highways. I'm certain I've never known any 10 people who combined would have the laundry list of accidents, mishaps, and tickets in their entire career you've had in two years. Your comment history here is every safety manager's nightmare.

I find that hard to believe. Just go through your own comment history. Looks pretty bad, huh?

I'm thinking we may have a relative of the original Patrick?

I was just thinking about Patrick the other day. I kind of miss him. He certainly livened things up around here, and he was great for getting us some extra traffic on the site. I still remember Brett referring to him as an arson, and lighting up the forum every time he posted anything.

I'm 60 and have gene married 40 years. No wait, I'm 25 and don't believe in marriage. Religion is also a mental disease.rofl-1.gif
