It just might. How fast over the posted limit was it?

In some cases they want at least 3 years since your offense, possibly longer depending on the circumstances.

Since I am not a lawyer or anything like that, I would imagine that would have to get past the 3 year mark before anyone would even think about looking at you to be considered for a driving job. But one of the smaller companies might overlook that if their insurance will allow. If I was a fortune teller, I would venture a guess and say most (if not all) of the large companies will not even consider you until after 3 years have gone by. But again, I am just guessing here.

Yeah, they're not gonna go for that too much. You can speak with Company-Sponsored Training Programs and trucking companies that hire inexperienced drivers and see who give you a shot. You'll be able to get your cdl , the question is whether or not anyone will hire you.

Go through our Truck Driver's Career Guide and follow all of the links you come across. That will give you a ton of information about how to choose a school, how to apply for pre-hires , and about every topic imaginable that pertains to getting your trucking career off the ground.

  • 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.

Pre-hire:

What Exactly Is A Pre-Hire Letter?

Pre-hire letters are acceptance letters from trucking companies to students, or even potential students, to verify placement. The trucking companies are saying in writing that the student, or potential student, appears to meet the company's minimum hiring requirements and is welcome to attend their orientation at the company’s expense once he or she graduates from truck driving school and has their CDL in hand.

We have an excellent article that will help you Understand The Pre-Hire Process.

A Pre-Hire Letter Is Not A Guarantee Of Employment

The people that receive a pre-hire letter are people who meet the company's minimum hiring requirements, but it is not an employment contract. It is an invitation to orientation, and the orientation itself is a prerequisite to employment.

During the orientation you will get a physical, drug screen, and background check done. These and other qualifications must be met before someone in orientation is officially hired.

Company-sponsored Training:

A Company-Sponsored Training Program is a school that is owned and operated by a trucking company.

The schooling often requires little or no money up front. Instead of paying up-front tuition you will sign an agreement to work for the company for a specified amount of time after graduation, usually around a year, at a slightly lower rate of pay in order to pay for the training.

If you choose to quit working for the company before your year is up, they will normally require you to pay back a prorated amount of money for the schooling. The amount you pay back will be comparable to what you would have paid if you went to an independently owned school.

Company-sponsored training can be an excellent way to get your career underway if you can't afford the tuition up front for private schooling.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I don't understand why they even ask since they pull your driving record and can see for themselves.

They want to see if you'll lie about it. Also if you are truthful and they can't hire you because of something they'll deny you and save everyone some time.

The problem is what if we forget? In Florida we can get a ticket, choose to pay it, but take on online driver education course which wipes out any points and insurance can't raise rates.

I don't get a lot of tickets but have used this "Get Out of Jail Free" card a few times and left it behind me. I couldn't even tell you now if I've gotten more than one ticket the past six years without pulling my own record.

Obviously the easy answer is to get a copy of our driving record but I've already applied a few places :)
