I am a convicted felon, can I become a truck driver?

Hey, Scott I was wondering have you ever heard of someone with a aggravated assault & person not to possesss firearms obtaining a job in the trucking industry? I'm getting ready to go to trucking school & pay myself because I can't get sponsored. My conviction is 5 years old

Lance I was in the same boat you are in a couple months ago. I've been around and around with most of the big carriers recruiting depts and some of their driver review boards. (A lot of recruiters will tell you to contact a driver review board, I have my doubts about their existence) The big factors here are length of time and the specific felony. Even with a trafficking charge you can still find work. I'm living proof. Just be persistent and 100% honest on the apps. I the record is there, they WILL find it.

Ex-Felon Looking For A Truck Driving Job

I'm trying to find out if there is anyone out there who has heard of a violent offender obtaining a trucking job. I have 2 felonies. Aggravated assault & person not to possess firearms. The conviction is 5 years old. I have been out for 4 years & I have been employed as a machine operator ever since my release. So I have 4 years of consistent work history since my release. I finished my parole/probation 2 months ago. I can't find a company sponsored CDL program to give me a chance. I am willing to take a loan out & pay for the training myself but I'm trying to figure out if it is even possible to get hired with a violent gun crime. Please, any response will help. Does anybody know of a friend or associate who has been hired as a violent offender?
