Hello everyone I have a question, so I have been trying to get hired, I have experience as a truck driver, with a valid cdl class a, I got injured in 2021 so I had to take some time off, my last company fired me for it and I did have to fight them tooth and nail, I eventually beat them in court over it, now I'm trying to get hired at a company, I have a couple of psp violations on my report, that's nearly 3 years old and 1 that's like 4 years old, other then that my record is clean, no citations no drug charges, no points and no felonys, nobody will hire me, I was shocked when even swift and western express, said no, considering they are the bottom of the ben, when it comes to company's, I went to us express completed all the tests required, which was nothing really, just a 20 min road test and a backing test, which I passed pretty easy, only to be told I can't get hired on the last minute after I did everything and wasted my time, because of a psp violation, I was learning the game it happens, I just want to know when will they fall of? thank you.

  • 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 think it’s 7 seven years but I’m not sure. I have a psp violation from 7 years ago and the last time my psp was pulled and I got a copy of it I didn’t see it on there.

Try smaller to midsize companies. I have some violations from almost 5 years ago that have hindered me from being hired by a lot of places even now. I’ve found more second chances at smaller companies than big ones.

From everything I’ve read violations are “supposed” to fall off after three years. Crashed after five. But I’ve talked to someone who said violations have stayed on their psp after three years.
