Pre-CDL Driving Record, CONVICTIONS only?

Hi all,

I've been lurking for a while and I planned on going to get my CDL in the next few months. Thank you for providing such a wealth of information.

I had a question about what companies look for in your driving record during the hiring process; Do you only need to worry about speeding CONVICTIONS or do tickets that were amended to a lesser charge and removed from your record after supervision count?

My court purpose driving record that I requested from the DMV only shows 1 speeding conviction (11-14 over) in OCT 2014, back before I knew to lawyer up. I have another speeding ticket in 2016 that was amended and removed from my record (NO CONVICTION). I'm worried that speeding tickets from long before I was considering a CDL would negate any hope of getting into school or getting a driving job after I get my CDL.

Is there a way to see the same information that companies would see when looking at my record? Does the hireright report [DAC?] (https://www.hireright.com/background-check-faq/answers/requesting-a-copy-of-your-background-report-file) only apply to CDL holders?

Thank you for reading, J
