Background checks and dismissed charges

Thank you for your input I feel more confident about the situation. I've been told the same thing from other sources. I'm just nervous about committing to something that could turn into an uphill battle. Again thank you very much I'm glad I got signed up here.

Background checks and dismissed charges

Thank you for replying. It's pretty simple I used to work out of state for a few weeks at a time. My cousin and I work ed together. We would get back to town usually i. The early hours. I dropped him of at his house and heading to mine. I'll admit I was pretty tired I probably should have stayed at his house but i didn't want to disappoint my girlfriend at the time. We get some pretty bad flooding certain times of the year and I let myself hydroplane into a flooded ditch I didn't hit anything and it was completely off the road but the water was waste deep and there was no getting my car out without a winch I had to walk back to my cousins about a half hour walk back down the road. My phone was ruined. The next day I called my friend who has a wrecker with a winch but my car was already gone. An officer reported it and had it pulled to the tow companies yard. It was explained to me in court the officer had to because it was in water and needed to make sure no one was under the water stuck or dead under it. Again thank you and expunging it is an option if you think it would be necessary, but there was no arrest and it doesn't show up on my MVR.

Hey Christian, welcome to our forum!

Unless there's more to this than you are telling us, you don't have a problem. If the charges were dropped then there are no charges on your record. The background check may show an arrest if there was one, but that can be explained just like you did in this post. Any application you fill out is going to ask about your background. You are responsible for giving them the information so they can confirm it with a background check. All you need to do is explain it just like you did to us. You tell them you got charged with leaving the scene of an accident, but the charges were dropped because there really was no "reportable accident."

That should clear it up, but I will tell you it sounds suspicious. I would be prepared to give a more detailed explanation if someone asks. They probably will.

Just be honest on your application. Tell them everything you know, and don't dare try to conceal something. They will do a thorough check and they will find what they need to catch you in a lie. Be honest and upfront. If it is as you say, then you should have no problem. I can't guarantee TMC will take you, but someone certainly will.

Background checks and dismissed charges

I am thinking about getting into a CDL training program I am leaning mostly towards TMC Transportation I am a bit concerned about my past record I have a fairly clean MVR with a 1 seat belt violation and a ticket from 4 years ago for driving on a closed Road I am worried about 4 years ago I was charged with fleeing the scene of an accident in my personal vehicle the charges were dismissed not deferred and I never had to pay a ticket because there was no reportable accident they just dropped the charges I'm just afraid of this showing up on a background check I don't know if it would make any difference to an employer I could possibly have it expunged if that would be better I'm not sure if somebody could please let me know if that's something that I should be worried about and if I should what should I do about it thank you
