Can I get a trucking job with these Points On My License

by Chris

I have been looking at becoming a truck driver for about 3 years now. I have been driving a taxi part-time on weekends to save money for a school and I finally have the money together.

The problem is that I have a speeding ticket (72 MPH in a 55 MPH), a change lane ticket and a left turn where prohibited ticket on my license—6 points in the state of Ohio. Also I have a misdemeanor conviction for theft from a family dispute that happened in June of 2002.

The truck driving school said the misdemeanor will not be a real problem but my tickets that I got on my license will make it difficult getting a job.

Does anyone know of companies that will hire someone with 3 tickets?

@ of your tickets are serious offenses in the trucking world.(Speeding 15 over, and unsafe lane change.) There are experienced drivers with perfect records who can't find work, so you would be getting hired on your good looks only. But, keep looking. Jimmy
