I talked to stephens transport today and am feeling really down. I was honest and told the recruiter I had been arrested twice for dwi in th past 5 years but both were dismissed. She quickly said you are ineligible and hung up. I have a clean record since records were dropped and no accidents. I was just wondering where else to try


Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Try everywhere! Put in as many applications as possible and talk to every recruiter you can.

Western Express comes to mind as a good place to start. They are known as a "second-chance" company who gives new drivers a chance that other companies might not. But they are still a very good starter company.

Bradley, they would have found out about it anyhow so don't think you messed up by being honest. Trust me, these companies have seriously high level background checks they'll do. So you're going to have to be honest about that.

CR England, PAM, USA Truck, Maverick, Carolina Cargo - all companies that tend to have a little more lenient requirements. There are plenty more out there too.

We have a list of companies that accept drivers with felonies:

Obviously those weren't felonies but that list will give you some ideas for companies that might accept you.
