    I would think so but it also may depend what kind of felony it is.Trucking school may but trucking company may not.If you plan on going to school I would suggest calling some companies first just to see before you spend money on schooling.

    Talk to the starter companies out there with there own schools before you invest in a private school.

    If you can afford a CDL school, there are many companies that will hire you after graduation. Some guys have mulitiple felonies and have served long prison sentences and get hired. If you want a trucking company school, just apply, be honest on the application, and maybe a couple will accept you. Best wishes.
