Requirements for becoming a trucker?
I am interested in trucking but I have a few questions. First let me explain a little why I want to become a trucker. Here recently my marriage of 15 yrs has dissolved due to finances and other factors and I let my kids go with their mom because even though they love me a lot I did not want to take them away from friends and the life they have. I will have to move out of the town we live in because jobs are dropping like rain. So I spent a lot of time thinking on what I would like to do and so trucking became perfect for me because I love to travel and I will be able to financially support my children. However, I don't know the requirements for trucking such as criminal BG or traffic Violations. For example my license was suspended because I could not show proof of insurance but I got them back and I do not know how that will effect me. Also probably a year ago I got charged with P.I. because of a family get together with in-laws but I can pay to have it expunged. Since my marriage has dissolved I decided to turn my life around and do what ever it takes to make it better such as turning to God and changing myself for the better!! So if someone out there can give me good advice or direction I sure would be thankful. Thank you
