Driver Record And History Questions?

Are speeding tickets over ten years old held against you with employers?

What is a CDLIS CONV and is there a place where all of them are listed for a particular driver?

Can I obtain a copy of my Commercial Driver's License Information System (CDLIS) and the National Driver Register (NDR) files myself?

Should I attain my complete driving record from each individual state I have held a license in?

Should I attain a criminal background check on myself in every state I have had any interactions with police or lived to be sure to list any possible violations or infractions no matter how long ago they were?

Why does my record indicate my Class as A* ? Could that be because I also hold a non commercial Motorcycle Permit as well?

Why is the motorcycle permit listed under Driver License not commercial Driver License? We are only allowed to have one license.

Is there a legal way to have old violations removed entirely from my MVR?

Should I also be concerned with contacting Social Security for a list of every employer I have ever had in my lifetime for start and end dates as well as rate of pay beginning and ending?

This may be pointless for me as I start orientation in a couple weeks but God forbid something goes wrong. I would like to be as prepared as I possibly can for my future. I know I have done some stupid things in my past but I am not the same person I was 40 years ago. I just do not know where to draw the line. I am sure there are some things that will not be taken into account after a period of time.

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.

MVR:

Motor Vehicle Record

An MVR is a report of your driving history, as reported from your state Department of Motor Vehicles. Information on this report may include Drivers License information, point history, violations, convictions, and license status on your driving record.

CDLIS:

The Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLIS) is a nationwide computer system that enables state driver licensing agencies (SDLAs) to ensure that each commercial driver has only one driver’s license and one complete driver record.

A drivers file will include their driving record as well as their medical certification status.

When I went to orientation with maverick none of these things were issues. If you get the invite to go there and your bus ticket you should be good. They will call your references and check everything, but I wouldn't be too concerned. Be upfront with everything so there are no surprises.

Thanks CT, I know they do all that ahead of time. I also hope this is the last position I ever feel the need to apply. I really think this is a great fit for me and have always hated asking for a job. I guess it is a part of me that just needs to strive to be completely organized and have all my ducks in a row. In my case what makes it real hard for me is I forget things. I strive to be entirely open and honest yet if I forget it could be mistaken for dishonesty. I honestly think that I will take some money out of future paychecks either way and start digging into my past and determine what skeletons I have forgotten about. I just can't swing the costs of it at this time.
