Questions about what companies look for in driving records.

also I did get my driving record from the past 10 years, I've bin emailing it to recruiters so they don't have to go through the trouble lol

Go to your local DMV and request a complete MVR report. If you've had a license in any other state, obtain reports from those states also.

This way you can tell exactly what's on there.

Since your "criminal history" was most likely as a juvenile, as long as you haven't been in any other trouble over age 18, that shouldn't be a big problem as long as you didn't murder someone, steal cars, etc. lol.

Basically on applications, answer EXACTLY what they ask for, nothing more, nothing less.

We highly recommend company sponsored training. Here are some links to help you get started and welcome to Trucking Truth.

I have many violations as a minor, driving past curfew, driving a unregistered car without insurance (I had no idea that the car wasn't legal I could of fought that but it was a close family members car and I didn't want them to get in trouble for it) and a small amount of marijuana charge when I was very young and it didn't involve a car so I don't think that should effect anything, like I said they take your license for anything when ur a minor lol Thanks for responding!

You may need to wait till you have had your license back for 5 years before a company will take you, some will be longer than that and some will pass altogether.

one of the violations that i lost my license from wasn't a driving violation "apparently they take ur license for anything when your a minor"

That's silly, how many violations do you have and what where they for?

What ever you do, do not get any more tickets.

Questions about what companies look for in driving records.

Hello, I've bin looking into getting my CDL im about to turn 21 in a few days, I was just wondering what companies look for in your driving record? i know there's a lot of information out there but i cant find the answers im looking for. when i was a minor i got my license suspended that was over 3 years ago, but i didn't get my license back till a little less then 3 years ago does that count against me? also one of the violations that i lost my license from wasn't a driving violation "apparently they take ur license for anything when your a minor" any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
