    Both the accident and speeding ticket occured when I had a Class A CDL.
    Driving School Experience only.Drove trucks for friends and family but only for cash


    That pretty much is everything.The reason why ive posted this again is because the last one had to do with swift and not other or all trucking companies.So this message makes it alot easier to look at.My main question is but I dont know if any of you can answer, My question is what is the most amount of time you can be disqualified for any truck driving company with class 8 trucks....cmv's,tractor trailers etc..

    Thank you! Have a nice day

    Landstar, you had posted that the moving violation that you received was in excess of 15/mph+, so that IS Careless Reckless Endangerment, sorry.

    MOST trucking companies want a 5 year MVR for a non experienced driver, recent grad, and a 10 year MVR for experienced. DUI's must be 10 years old.

    Therefore, the minimum amount of years would be a 5 year MVR, depending on which company you are applying for.



    You sure seem to think that you have a lot of the answers that you seek.
    I will not sugar coat the facts for you. This is trucking, after all.

    You did not like the answers that you had received in your other threads, apparently. If you didn't like the gear that those posters were in, you surely wont like the one I am in.

    Best of Luck!!!

    Honestly, you should look for smaller companies to hire you. Even if you go to Swift, they very well might drag you to orientation, just to tell you they wont hire you. It's pretty common.

    Produce season is starting. Owner ops pullin for local farmers are looking for local jobs in many areas. You will probably drive a POS farm truck, but who cares? Most of these guys do not have the ability or do not care enough to pull your reports. Then theres beer distributers..as long as you act like you drink the kind of beer they sell, you'll probably fit in just fine there. They usually dont care...they'll even help kids get their CDL to drive for em...

    Most places will *NOT* hire you until you have 3+ months of driving experience *after* the accident...and thats a minimum, for bottom feeders like JB Hunt....

    Face it, you can make the same amount of money driving local as you can OTR. It sucks because OTR is an enjoyable lifestyle...but OTR sucks because of the economy and unemployment rates...

    Driving "charges" vary state to state. I have 15 over tickets in 4 states over my life and NONE were "reckless" charges. The insurance my company uses also says it isn't the same.

    Okay, Jeepskate, we will call it aggressive driving.
    I am not sure what Texas would classify 15+ as, but it is still is not good for an applicant to have against them.

    Our company just calls it a major moving violation.

    I also referred to it as a major violation. I referred him to Coastal Transportation in N. Ga. Do you have any companies that you could refer?

    Yeah, the one I referred him to, Coastal Transportation N.Ga. would consider the 15+/mi over the posted speed limit as careless reckless, but, they will work with that charge, at least, they used to. He would need to take that into consideration when applying, which states and companies would allow that major violation.

    Hey Mr. Chicken.you have no idea what you are talking about from what I heard from the "HORSES MOUTH" if you dont know what that means than look it up.Ive already talked to major carriers and I can verify that you are truely wrong.....I dont want to argue with you son but you are completly wrong.......I dont know about the truck dribing rules from the middle east,ireland,england etc....but I do know about the policies from the good ol USA and Texas and you are wrong on everything.....Good Luck.
