CDL Schools Criminal background checks

Tell your Friend to be 100% open, honest and upfront with the Recruiters so they can do their job and make sure the Safety Director at the Company knows about the arrest and will sign off on it before they go to the school. Good Luck

Ok now I have another question about this. If he is going to tell the company about the arrest is there any reason to wait until the arrest is expunged before he starts applying? I thought the reason you get it expunged is so you can wipe it out of existance. If you're just going to tell them why get it expunged? I admit I'm a little clueless about this kind of thing.

Would the recruiter refer him to the safety director before he goes to school? That would be great!

CDL Schools Criminal background checks

It's a drug possession charge. He went through a program called "pre-trial intervention". It involved counseling and community service. There was never an actual trial or conviction. After he graduated from the invention program they gave him papers to get it expunged. I don't really know how it all works, but I do know he was not convicted and he does need to get this charge expunged. Sorry if that's as clear as mud! LOL

I realize all of the companies will run a background check. I just wanted to help him by getting some advice on which companies might do the check before he gets all the way to the school. It would be awful to quit his job and then be told he can't be in the program.

Do you know if any of the companies do the check first?

Do any of the company cdl schools perform the background check before you start to school? I know someone who is interested in becoming a driver. He has a previous arrest, but was not convicted. His record is in the process of being expunged. He is working right now, so he is a little weary about quitting to go to school, then finding out he doesn't qualify. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
