What kind of tickets count against you when trying to get a trucking job?
by Billy Conklin
Hi, Ok, let me explain. I am trying to clean up my license so I can get my CDL permit and go to trucking school. But after reading some posts online, I don't know if I should continue with my plan.
It all started with and expired inspection sticker, I got a ticket for that and didn't have the money to pay it. Then I was behind in child support so between the two of those thing, my regular license got double suspended.
Then I drove anyway and got a ticket for driving without a license, and a seat belt ticket at the same time.
Bottom line is that this equaled a TON of money and I got it all paid off except the last $287.00 to get it unsuspended.
This is all within the last couple years.
I am seeing on the company hiring boards that you cannot have more than 3 tickets in the last 3 years. Are these only moving violations, or any tickets at all? Does the no inspection count against me ?
