Made mistake will it cost me my future plans!

Nothing showed up on my record I wasn’t even in the system, dmv said it’s like I never had anything! And NOTHING IS SHOWING UP! advice on how to know for sure !

Without getting into the details of your story - operating a CMV without the proper class of CDL is a DISQUALIFYING OFFENSE. So you may not even be able to obtain a CDL now.

There are also SERIOUS PENALTIES for operating a CMV without the proper class of CDL - such as: fine up to $2,500 and up to 90 days suspension of drivers license.

So your "mistake", may in fact cost you the ability to GET A CDL in the first place - much less get a HIRE, even if you were to somehow be able to actually obtain a CDL - which you "might" be able to do, if a lawyer actually beats the ticket, which is not likely (absent some pre-trial "deal" to drop the conviction).

Most companies (in fact ALL due to insurance) even prohibit a CDL licensed PASSENGER (rider) from being in the vehicle (and not being an employee of the company), due to risk of having that person drive the CMV.

What to do if it "happens again"? Get the vehicle off the road, pull the brakes, put on the flashers and call 911. If your husband has a heart condition that caused him to fall out of the seat while driving, I'm not seeing how he could NOT BE MEDICALLY DISQUALIFIED FROM DRIVING AT ALL.

I would SAVE YOUR $$ going to school in August, until you are sure you can actually get hired. Even if you somehow got a CDL from the school, with your record of suspension and the current debacle, it's going to be awhile until you could actually be considered for a hire - and having a CDL but not using it - means you are going to have to be RETRAINED before getting out behind the wheel ANYWAYS. Most companies want to see you 30-90 days from date of graduation, before considering your training to be STALE (especially with no OTR experience), and want to either refresher or retrain you.

Yeah - you're kind of screwed here, and without trying to be mean - while I understand your desire to help after your husbands mishap - the LAST THING YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE WAS TO DRIVE A CMV WITHOUT A CDL.

I did take responsibility I am not saying it isn’t my fault , all I am asking is do I have a chance ! So you all are telling me that if your spouse was in the seat and slowly going down you wouldn’t help slide them out and slide in to get to safety! Far as not being my first time behind the wheel I have drove and hauled stuff around home base so yeah you can say I know some things , I ain’t asking for sympathy at all just basic do I have a chance with this situation! This don’t make me stupid or irresponsible! Fine been paid and court is done ! Just wanted some drivers to answer and thank you for your time and answering!

Ok my husband drives OTR and I was with him in Kentucky and he grabbed his chest and I thought he was having a heartache, that being said he slipped out the seat and I started driving and of course forgot my seat belt , and only was gonna drive to safety , got stopped by lawman and of course I am worried! Worried not because the lawman-husbands boss hired a lawyer and it’s fixed that being said I am wanting my cdl ! What and will any one hire me ? I am going to school in August to train and I know a lot of things already won’t never know it all, but I also found out my ex husband. Didn’t pay a ticket and my license had been suspended due to non payment so I paid the ticket got reinstated, but his boss said no one will ever hire me because I drove without a cdl! So if it happens again and I don’t have a cdl I will do what it takes to try to save my husband? I know I was wrong but I would do it again if need be! My husband is fine now and I love the road and enjoy seeing all the trucks , just wish truckers were nicer like the old days when dad drove !
