Over the last decade I have had 3 public intoxication/ public profanity charges due to one certain officer range about 2 years apart last one was in 10/18. I know I should not let him push my buttons but it is what it is. Which company will send me to cdl school? I have been honest with everyone I talked to and none will pull trigger. I am hopeless here help me guys.

  • 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.

The companies you are applying to see it as someone for the last ten years has not addressed their substance and mental well being issues and has an issue with authority figures as well.Public intoxication tells them that an indulgence in alcohol(?) leads to irresponsible thought processes with a negative outcome.So I have been told as well.

I have a misdemeanor from three years ago for loud music.It was reduced to disorderly conduct.The only other conviction was from 1991 a DUI.That is all there is on my background and because of the disorderly conduct I can not get a level 1 finger print card,I can not volunteer at animal(Adopt as well)/homeless shelters,I can not volunteer at food banks,I can not get hired at A LOT of interim jobs while I am going to school.I have been told by call centers and other employers TEN YEARS must pass before I can be employed.And the volunteer services.....nope.I have been told never again even when I tell them it was for MUSIC,no probation,no jail time just a small fine.

All they see it as is MISDEMEANOR/DISORDERLY CONDUCT EQUALS A BAD PERSON.I am not playing the victim here but that is all they see.Very few potential employers have asked me what my conviction is for.I have been sent copies of what my record shows from the court house and all it shows is:Misdemeanor reduced to disorderly conduct.

I OWN IT.But what a mess.Employers know ''life'' happens.The interim is what employers want to see clean after the fact.They want to see if someone can stay out of trouble.Not lecturing ya man.I know all too well like many others on here that ''life'' happens and when it does all you can do is move on.Hopefully my post will let others know that it takes very little to disrupt and possibly ruin your life.

Nice bike too.Love the red/whitewall combo wheels.Best of luck.Keep the rubber side down.

Chicken wing use this app to Apply For Paid CDL Training. One application will send it to many different carriers. Keep applying, I'm sure someone will bite. If you still cant find anything check out Western Express, Carolina Cargo or CR England. The starting pay is less than others but they're known for giving people 2nd (and 3rd) chances that other carriers wont touch. Ignore the trash you read about them, put in a year of safe driving and you'll find some carriers not wanting you now will be more than happy to hire you.

Wilbur, what would the penalty have been for loud music? I'm not a lawyer but it seems like it would've been alot less severe than disorderly conduct.

The way the law reads I understand, the officer I dealt with has a personal beef because I dated his ex-wife and public profanity the can tow your car, and fine you. Even took my bike, once and had it towed to his house. So I understand and I understand how it looks (like Wilbur said) but I know the man in the mirror.

Hey there Rob T! I hope you and yours is doing great and happy new year to ya!

During winter break from school me and 6 other students were hanging out and it was a little after 4PM and the music was a little past a little loud but we could still hear each other talk without having to raise our voices.I even had the manager in and out of my unit to inspect my refrigerator for replacement and she did not say anything about the volume and believe me she is the type to voice her opinion.About two hours later local police arrived at my residence and stated there was a complaint and issued me a ticket and an appear notice.I did hire an attorney to the sum of $3600.00 to defend me.He has a pretty good record when it comes to wins in court say 98%.

He was back and forth from the court and I met with him multiple times before we appeared in front of the judge.He himself couldn't believe he could not get me a clean slate,completely dropped charge.He did refund me $1000.00 though.I told him things have changed since I was younger and he stated that disorderly conduct can be anything from giving someone the finger to loud music or simply calling someone on the phone too much just making the phone ring in itself is harassment if the other party does not want you to call.No threats need to be made let alone even speaking.Just the phone ringing itself will do.

But yeah,I agree it should have been a fine and no record.And my attorney was just as disappointed as I was.Also here in AZ. there is no expungement of records either so it remains there and open forever.Like I said prior to that all I had was DUI from '91.

I have a usb camera that is tiny and plugs right into a usb port.It hangs around my neck whenever I go outside so that way if I need to take care of a situation my hands are free but most importantly captures video of what went down because in this day and age it seems whoever calls the police first seems to automatically get a pardon even if they instigated the situation.I have had individuals try to rob me at knife point and when I exercise my 2nd amendment rights and it ends well(I don't have to shoot)they have the nerve to call the police or before I can and say the opposite.But a quick look at the usb camera shows the truth and prevents a HUGE mess.It is on me every time I step foot outside and when I ride.

Sorry it’s been a minute. I used my resources and was straight forward and ended up at company sponsored Careers Worldwide in Keenesburg Colorado just finished headed to DMV this morning to get my Class A. This place has been awesome great instructors and great class. The class after us was huge compared to mine. We started with 35 and by beginning of last week we had 12 who all but one got there CDL. I finished 2nd in my class behind a guy we nicknamed One Shot as he literally OneShot everything. Just wanted to let everyone know if your honest and Put in the hard work stay focused you can do this. It has been a journey of many cold grueling mornings and fast paced studying but now I have a year to earn my reputation and fulfill a childhood dream, and it is an adventure that beats the hell out sitting behind a desk, so let those big wheels start turning. Thanks everyone for your input, any tool for your toolbox is a blessing.

Congratulations on getting that CDL! That's where I went to school for mine, too, after it had lapsed from the chauffeur license.
