    Greetings,
    I have 1 dui. My conviction was December of 2017. My license has been reinstated since March of 2021.
    I will attach my actual driving history. I do have funding to do the cdl training. I just have read a lot online and am unsure if I can even get a job with my history. I would greatly appreciate any feed back.
    I am located in Pennsylvania.
    Below is my Individual Driver Record.
    I was obviously an immature criminal but haven't drank or done drugs for six years.

    It'll be tough, but some company will hire you. You might get free cdl school through the WIOA Program in your state.
    Get your cdl with all the endorsements, then start applying for jobs.
     
    austinmike and BlessedWayy Thank this.

    Yeah. I am getting my training from WIOA. I was thinking I would potentially be high risk insurance wise. Plan on doing 6 weeks to get fully endorsed. Appreciate the reply. I see people look to you for answers around here after lurking. Haha.

    Does that WIOA cover any other types of work? Like plumber, electrician and so on?
    Not saying not to get cdl but if you can get other training in the trades that's what I'd look into, A whole lot more money and less hours
     
    2Tap, BigR, tscottme and 4 others Thank this.

    The dui might be an issue. It will be, but I don't know by how much. Plumbers, and electricians can make real good money. I think/know the dui will be lesser of an issue in the trades. I hAve met many that have duis.

    Where are you located?
     
    BigR, Numb and gentleroger Thank this.
