I have careless driving, speeding 20 over and failure to yield and can’t find a truck driving job.

    You've got to go for jobs no one else will do. Feel like cleaning out Port-a-potties? Deliver Shingles maybe?

    So you are basically telling us you weren't smart enough to get an attorney. Do you even have a CDL?

    Sounds like the OP went to a private CDL school. This is a big problem with most of these places. They will gladly take your 4-8 thousand dollars and get you the promised "Golden Ticket". Most will never even ask about your driving/criminal record, or they will gloss over it. "No big deal" they'll say. "There's a Truck Driver shortage, it's easy to get a job". In my opinion, it is one of the advantages of Company Sponsored Training at the Megas. They will background check you to death. If they won't accept you to their school and give you a job, your choices are going to be real slim. Just my $.02

    Loved that scene in Real Genius. The proffessor whom hated the smell of popcorn and his house is filled with it.
