Did you try Prime? When I applied to Prime, I had an at-fault rear end accident on my record as well as following too close. Granted the accident happened a year ago when I applied but I would check them out if you haven't already.

I am very happy to have found this thread. I had similar thing now very close to 3 years ago. One company told me I had to be clear by 5 years. I know what happened then and in no way will be repeated. Circumstances in life cause one to allow regrettable choices that you seriously can learn from so as to never be placed in similar, and learn how to make better choices.

I am at the beginning stages of a driving career, that I WANT very much. I am determined to work through this and would like to be able to prove myself the best drive any company is seeking. One who constantly moves forward in life with awarenes taught from lessons of the past.

I wish you the best in becoming accepted. I will be watching this thread for expected good outcome!

Hey Brian, I just graduated from NETTTS ( N. Andover Ma. ). Finished the 540 on the 17th and tested out on the 11th. ( Saturday ) PASSED! Anyway, Career placement has many connections with these companies and they know which companies will not even look at you and which will give you a shot. I jumped through many hoops to get where I am, and I start with TRANS AM the end of the month. I filled out many apps and finally got a company to give me a chance. As they have all said. BE HONEST AND UPFRONT, HOWEVER, DONT VOLLUNTEER ANYTHING. You will find a company to give you a chance bud. It may not be the first or even third on your list of companies to go to, but you will get your foot in the door. And once you do? Give that company a minimum of 1 yr. 110% of your abilities and attention and who knows what doors will open. Good Luck Mark

I graduated from NETTTS- Pawtucket, practically top of my class and a perfect one and done.

I wonder if you can come to my school to see if the career placement personnel can help you out or are you stuck to the Somers location

Spoke to your safety director the other day... grumpy guy lol

Where are you located driver? It's not for everyone and they don't hire from everywhere - but the company I work for (Witte Bros. Exchange out of Troy, MO) is pretty reasonable with folks as long as they're honest. Worth talking to them.
