Ask A Trucker has had a lot of questions about felonies. The questions regarding felonies will be moved to a page about felonies on your record. In short the best thing for you to do is call a lot of trucking companies to see if they will hire you with what you have on your record, watch as I call a few trucking companies here and ask them about trucking jobs and the hiring of felons. Notice the wide variety of answers about tolerance and policies.
Here's your chance to find out what you've been wondering about trucking! Ask a trucker any question that you have. Every question you have is important don't hesitate to ask. It is one of the best ways to find out if becoming a trucker is for you.
Or maybe you just want to learn about trucking for the educational value. Learn about life as a trucker its probably not exactly what you think.
