who will hire and train me?

I have my cdl permit and have been looking for somewhere to train me for my license and hire me afterward. I have two controlled substance charges one from 2008 the other from2009. Everywhere I've applied had turned me down. I'm not sure now where to go for cdl training? Is there any companies that don't check stop far back our are willing to give someone a chance?

I know it's and insurance issue, but I felt my career and future in my gray and now they've slipped away for a mistake when u was a teenager. Any insight or knowledge as to who I can talk to would be much appreciated. Thank you and stay safe out there!

Companies do go back 10 years in your work and driving history, but don't give up hope, your not the only one in the world that has made mistakes. It was suggested in another comment page to try England, or CRST, that's a very good idea but if you go online and start researching trucking companies and their hiring policies, I think you will find one or even several that will get your training completed and give you a chance, those mistake issues were several years ago, and you are older now. Just try looking at some trucking companies in your area, or down in Dallas,Fort Worth area, lots of trucking down that way. God bless.

Try CRST or C.R. England. CRST does team driving only. CR England does solo or teams after your training.
