    I know CDL holders that have been in accidents and still find companies that will hire them, Keep pounding the pavement and making calls, This doens't have to be the end of your goal to become a truck driver.

    I know a lawyer in my area that helped me keep something off of my record when i was a teen about 10 years ago and gave him a call. He said that he will talk with the assistant DA and see if there is anything we can do.

    If not then @Chinatown can i get that list of companies just incase lol i appreciate the help guys.

    Unlikely any company that has their own cdl school will hire you.
    What you can do is attend a private cdl school, then apply to some "second chance" companies.
    Carolina Logistics
    Carolina Cargo
    Paschall Truck Lines
    Roadtex Transportation
    Senn Freight Lines
    Western Express
    One guy that posted on here had 15 tickets & fender benders and found a job on Craigslist doing coast to coast refrigerated trucking. An owner-operator with one truck hired him. He said he made dozens of phone calls and left dozens of messages, even if he didn't think he was qualified. He had a job withing 3 days.

    No,you aren't a safe driver. If you are so careless as to rear end someone in your car and total it, do you think someone is going to put you in 80,000 pounds? I wouldn't.

    Use your gi bill for a diesel technician school. Put a few clean driving years behind you, and consider your next step if you’re still interested
     
    Just passing by Thanks this.
