In my MVR I have a couple license suspensions, an at fault accident and driving without insurance and either a defective head lamp (mainly because I was just 17/18 and no guardian or financial support really .. any wats my license has been reinstated for over a year now and I haven’t had a ticket, accident, or any kind of moving violation in at least the last 3 years and I intend to continue to keep it that way. I am a student driver but the guy I hired to train me screwed me over. I am in dire need of finding a Company that offers CDL training that is willing to work with me .

I applied to Roehl Stevens transport CR England Knight CSRT

the recruiter at night encouraged me to reapply in December, I wonder if that’s when the items in my MVR will pass ???? I am waiting to also hear back from Pam transport but I fear I’ll be turned down and does anyone have a clue what the requirements for an acceptable MVR is for Knight or Pam ? As well as other companies I should apply to ???

CDL:

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.

I'm not an authority on MVR issues. You don't give a date for your record points. And company policies vary - it's not the same across the board. Here's a list you might take a look at: Trucking Companies That Will Hire Felons Not that you are in that category, but these companies may be a bit more liberal in their "past life" standards.

Also, fill out this application: Apply For Truck Driving Jobs. This one application is sent to many companies all at once - saves you time. This is the path I took and I got hired at Swift and entered their CDL school.

Finally, here's and application form that goes dirctly to Paid CDL training schols: Apply For Paid CDL Training

Good luck!

Prime recruiter Vanessa Waters' direct line is (570) 602-4704. She helped get me hired when another Prime recruiter told me I didn't qualify. I've worked for Prime, Knight & Roehl. Going back to Prime this Monday. I know what it's like to be under the gun & rushing a decision due to external pressures. It's been a tough lesson learned for me to take my time, think things through & count my blessings. Good luck to you!
