    I have 8 years OTR experience. I am finding it difficult to get a job with a 2 year old DUI on my driving record. I know a lot of companies hire with a 3 year old prior. If any body knows of any companies that will hire with a 2 year old Dui please let me know.

    Check out this thread:

    I don't know anything about this or them. I just remembered 123456 posted this info.

    I can't tell you who, but I have seen a few that were only one or two years. The mainstream and Mega-Companies probably won't work. You are going to have to think outside the box and sell yourself. Get away from online applications. Find phone numbers and convince someone to give you a chance.

    I have a DUI that will be five years old in September. The DUI was dismissed but my license was suspended for a year due to refusing a breathalyzer. I am about to start truck driving school, and would appreciate any information on companies that might hire me now. Thanks!

    good luck with that. i had a dui in may 08. my license was suspended for a year so i waited a year to pay the reinstatement fee. ohio only tracks dui for 3yrs but it is 3yrs after you pay the fees. long story short it has been 5yrs and i am finally getting back on a truck, but it is with ptl because they are the only ones that would hire me because i have been outa the game so long. i figure 6mos and bail. dui is death to a cdl
