Ok , I'm a truck driver with 2years OTR I ended up getting a DUI in personal vehicle on Christmas Vacation in Florida.

Anyway It was reduced to reckless , and is now considered a 1 year prior DUI

MVR points Ca-1.5 Fl- 3.0

Any idea of whom , or anyone willing to work with me? Who are the 2nd Chance companies .

So far , I know of TransAm and MVT that from my research will take after 2 years. Traveling is not an issue , also I'm mainly based in the LA area , which I may have a lot of better luck than online ....

But any and all responses would be appreciated


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.


Motor Vehicle Record

An MVR is a report of your driving history, as reported from your state Department of Motor Vehicles. Information on this report may include Drivers License information, point history, violations, convictions, and license status on your driving record.

From what I have read it seems that most companies won't consider you for at least three years when it comes to D.U.I's. (If at all). I am sure if you look around you might find a smaller independent company that might give you a chance.

Either stop drinking or stop driving. You have screwed up your driving career. Yes, you will have to wait at least 2 years. A DUI and wreckless driving are jop killers in this field.
