New to the forum here. So recently I've considered a career in trucking and have started looking into the field. I want to gain some pre-hires , but I have some concerns about my driving record. I got Cited for a DUI on 12/23/17. I didn't refuse the breathalyzer. I went to court and entered a diversion program. I completed the diversion program. So I was never charged with the DUI. I ordered a Non-Employment driving record and there is no DUI or diversion listed on it. So my questions are;

Will the DUI show up on some other type of driving record or anywhere at all?

Should I include it on my applications or share this with any future employers?

looking forward to what you guys have to say

Pre-hire:

What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?

Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.

We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.

A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment

The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.

During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.

I assume you got ARRESTED for the DUI?

If so - your prints will be in federal system, and it will come back on a BG check.

I was arrested. I was not fingerprinted nor did I have my mugshot taken. I read somewhere that diversion will show up on a criminal record but it won't say what the diversion was for.

Tell the recruiters you talk with just what you typed here. Can’t go wrong with honesty. Try and hide stuff and it will be discovered, as the companies do extremely thorough background checks.

Long story.... but i wasnt arrested, wasnt read my rights, wasnt fingerprinted....but my record shows i was arrested for a complaint my sister filed against me.

I had no idea.

Trust me when i say, they will find it. You were arrested so you were charged at some point. So do as Packrat says and just tell them.

There are many minor sins trucking companies will forgive.

Lying on an application isn't one of them.

As far as DUI's that were "disappeared" do to diversion programs - they are still DUI arrests. I'm unsure how trucking companies deal with these nowadays, as they have become more popular for first-time offenders.

Not sure if 12/17 is going to be far enough in your rearview mirror to slide by, they may want some more time between offense date and hire date.

Best you can do is ASK - WORST you can do is LIE.
