I wish I could post a picture of my Mvr . But I am looking into starting with Roehl GYCDL program . I am working with a recruiter. I have explained my concerns to her and she seems to think it will be ok. But I do have a at fault accident from 1/2018 which triggered a suspension due to not having insurance that lapsed. I got pulled over the day after my license was suspended (4/2018)and the officer cited me but it was a non point able ticket. This triggered a seconded suspension. I paid my reinstatement fee and have to carry a current sr 22 until 11/11/2022. I have had no other accidents or moving violations since then. Before that nothing but a improper headlight ticket form 2/2014. What you guys think? It’s racking my brain.

  • 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.

Howdy, Destiny!

Welcome to Trucking Truth!!

If Roehl thinks you're good, then you probably are. As Kearsey mentioned in another thread, many companies have relaxed requirements, since Covid.

Here's some starter links:

And if Roehl doesn't work out (or even if they do) .. Fill THIS out, for a benchmark: Apply For Paid CDL Training

Wish you all the best;

I doubt you would be hired with two recent suspensions, plus the SR22 requirement on top of that. You record makes you an extra high risk for an insurance provider.

People need to realize that all the Mega carriers, have a HUGE pool of prospects, looking to get into, or move on in trucking.........Maybe mom & pop places would be more forgiving, then you just go without any license/driving incidents, time heals all things. Aside from the added fuel problem, I'm guessing, if it continues too long, some of those mom & pop places will go under.

All ya can at this point is apply EVERYWHERE, and see who bites, you maybe surprised actually, who knows, all you can do is TRY, and try as much as you need to. Good Luck in your quest

Destiny, trucking companies seek candidates who are responsible and trustworthy. You drove on a suspended license. That doesn’t bode well for your chances. Sorry… it’s the truth.

One of our responsibilities is to maintain current registrations and other documents, not to mention a valid CDL requiring a medical recertification.

You are competing with many people with pristine driving records.

I wish you luck.

Unfortunately, I believe the suspensions and SR22 requirement will sink your hopes before you even get in the door.

The only thing that will fix this is time, and not messing up again. I had one suspension for no insurance, luckily it was over 20 years ago, but even THAT made me queasy while applying.

Well , to all you no way Debbie downers, I actually did pass my mvr and I got in. And you should not call someone not trustworthy when you personally do not know them or all of the circumstances around their situation. I gave you guys brief descriptions my issues. I see this type of forum is not for me !!!

How does one pass an MVR?

Look…I reread all of the replies; nothing inappropriate, just truth based on our experience.

I’ll reiterate what I said;

“Trucking companies want trustworthy and responsible candidates”.

Hey if you don’t want experienced drivers trying to help you, then you’re right this isn’t for you.

Good luck.
