So far, none of the companies ive spoken with are not concerned with petty tickets. People do get pulled for no reason more than you think.

Thank you Anne, So far, the only issue im having is with that accident. I appreciate the input and ill research that more now that youve mentioned it

Feb of 19, I was taking my daughter to school and was involved in a minor fender bender. The woman I had hit had made an illegal turn , however, told the police officer that she was coming from a completely different direction which made it my fault. I received a citation for careless driving. I fought and argued with the officer and my insurance company but to mo avail. I was found not guilty in court and my insurance company agreed not to raise my rates so I assumed that would be the end of it. Forward a year and a couple of months later. Coved hits and I’m laid off. I decide to look into getting my cdl and driving. Nope. The accident comes back to haunt me. The first few companies I try for paid cdl training denies me. Disappointed, I let it go and take a job here and there . Now, I really want to pursue this again but don’t know how to go about doing it. Thoughts and advice please. Thank you

John;

Is there any chance that your location (Daytona Beach, FL) could be a contributing factor to some companies declining you? Florida is not the easiest state to get hired from, due to lack of freight out. We've seen this often, here at TT.

Just wondering out loud, and wishing you well on your quest~!!

Lol back in the day I would get stopped a lot by CHP driving my modded RED '66 beetle. Too low modified tail lights, beeds hanging from my mirror etc etc. Never got tickets just a lecture mostly. Otherwise easy fix it tickets.

And lot of times because I was a blonde, long haired, white dude inda 'hood, and yes I was vocal to them on that fact, they left me alone after. That's So Cali, whatcha gunna do lol
