I have been lurking for awhile now, studying the high road training program and getting everything ready to roll on my new career. Im super excited to get going and im really looking forward to the challenge. Thank you guys for the positive attitude and honesty. I have great scores in the high road program and ive learned so much, also bought brets book and have read thru it several times already lol. Its awesome! Applying with Prime tomorrow after I take my permit test, so wish me luck lol good-luck.gif . I have one speeding ticket from 6 years ago and one misdemeanor from awhile ago, when I was young and didn't know better. Im really praying this wont stop them from accepting me, I have all my records for the dates and I will be totally honest and open about all of it. I have a few questions, ive been reading some recents posts and theres something that's making me nervous. Im 26 years old, but this is my dream job and ive never wanted anything as bad as this. I am a hard worker and willing to learn and do whatever it takes. I hope my age wont be considered to young? Thanks everyone, sorry about the long post haha.

Oh ya and no whining here lol. I was raised on working hard and earning what you want, no exuses or complaining, just getting the job done whatever it takes.

Absolutely NOT. Minimum age for Interstate is 21, Intrastate is 18. I'd be just slightly more concerned with the misdemeanor, however, it will probably be a non-issue.
