Hello everyone! I’m new to the forum and new to the site! Let’s get started! So I have two accidents on my mvr...no tickets for either one as they were dismissed! They were all preventable if I was driving below the speed limit in both cases. In 2018 I was driving down a 4 lane Divided road. Double yellow line to separate the two lanes of course. I was in the right hand lane. A 45 foot delivery box truck was a t a complete stop behind a city bus. He gets over, no signal or anything gets into the passing lane in front of me and I had no time to stop at all. Never saw it coming... Slid right into him while putting on brakes. Got a ticket for reckless driving and prohibited driving. In 2020 of February I passed through a green light. The car that hit me was in a one way at an intersection. After The wreck was over I got out I watched my light turn from yellow to red. I also have an improper lane change from roughly three yrs ago comes off Early next yr. I don’t have my cdl but I just got my cdl permit as well as my dot Physical card. I’m looking for a company that will hire me, train me with me not paying out of pocket up front but I wouldn’t mind staying with the company to pay it all off. I’ve tried Stevens, c.r. England, and PAM. Those three said no.I have also applied for western express, and a few others but Haven’t gotten a call back yet.

Thank you again!

You will probably have to wait 3 years from the date of your last ticket. CR England, Pam and Western are pretty forgiving when it comes to tickets, if they are passing its going to be a up hill battle.

It sounds like you have some driving habits you have to work on. A 45 ft truck doesn't move fast from a stop and that's why you got the reckless and prohibited driving. An accident report lists all citations given so when they pull it, it's there even if it's not on your MVR. if I'm doing the recruiting and I hear a 45 foot truck came out of nowhere I hear "I wasn't paying attention" because I know those trucks don't move fast and you skid into it. When I'm driving and I see a vehicle of any size stuck behind another vehicle I'm assuming the vehicle behind it is going to pull out and I approach it that way.

Like Bob said you may have to wait about 3 years and make sure you go through sponsored training. You don't want to drop thousands of dollars for a license you can't use.
