I could not get my CDL at Prime orientation due to an unpaid surcharge stemming from a traffic citation in North Carolina some 20+ years prior. The citation was paid way back then, but the unknown surcharge slipped by me, and Missouri wouldn't give me my CDL until I resolved it.

Get it taken care of.

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 had a speeding ticket and FTA on my record from North Carolina in the late 80's. I was suspended in NC and didn't know it. I remember the ticket - I got it the day before I was deployed with a USMC MEU (Marine Expeditionary Unit). I went thru JAG and they worked with Dare County Court to get the ticket resolved. Something slipped thru and my license ended up being suspended for FTA. I found that out 30 years later. I found a law office in NC that appeared for me (for $199) and got the whole thing dropped and removed from my record. I couldn't get into school for my CDL before that was taken care of. The whole process took a month.

Mike in order to eliminate any risk, settle your tickets. The background checks conducted by potential employers are thorough and comprehensive.

Amen to that. Most, if not all, trucking companies vet you like you are being considered for Vice President. In the end, they know more about you than you know about yourself. I've been going through the vetting process for the last month.

Hopefully most do a better job vetting than was performed for the current VP, Bruce K.

I don't care who you are, that's funny and sad all at the same time.
