    Smart man! You'll be fine and you will find several opportunities, but you might also get the door slammed in your face... just move along until you find a good fit. BTW, there are many threads on this site for the DUI situation, and some of them already have lists that you might want to consider. Just do a search with the word DUI (upper left corner of this page), and spend some time reading the exisiting threads.
    Good luck and remember to keep your nose clean!

    My brother got a DUI sleeping in the bar parking lot , with car off keys in ignition in the 80s its still on his record.
    DUI actual physical control.

    Somebody will hire you even if its a bottom feeder , pay your dues until it's 10 years behind you.
    Best of luck.

    I'll dig through my notes and find something.
    Where is your location?
    I've seen companies that have "no DUI's within previous 3 years" , so I'll look for those.
    Did you attend cdl school?
