I took everyone's advice. I contacted my prospective employer, told them the whole embarrassing story. I was told, as long as it didn't appear on current case search, weather, guilty or not, I have nothing to worry about. They said unless brought up, don't mention it at all, as long as I was expundge which it was. I was welcome to attend their training course. However, you can bet, my documents will be traveling with me. I'm just afraid of being turned away after the fact

I'm sorry; that sucks that they can't tell you ahead of time 100% - sounds stressful. I hope it works out for you as smoothly as possible!

Just a hint, carry copies with you, not the originals. If for some reason the originals are lost you're in a world of hurt replacing them. Something else you may want to check into is if you can record the documents in the county where the court is. It costs some money but you can then get certified originals for a few bucks and you don't have to worry about losing the originals. Just suggestions.

This is why we recommend Paid CDL Training Programs. They will usually run your background before they accept you. I know CFI does. While you're in training they will look again.


Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.
