    Back in high school I got into the bad crowd and life went down a bad road ended up catching 2 charges! I had changed my life around and am doing great and I want to continue forth with CDL truck driving dreams! i love the adventure i love exploring and sight seeing and i just love to drive! Anyways,
    I have 2 misdemeanor charges
    1. misdemeanor hit and run
    2. misdemeanor evading from police

    Will these 2 charges prevent me from going ahead with getting my CDL license and attending a truck driving school like swift? If these charges will prevent me, will the only way to go about getting my CDL is to get those 2 charges expunged?

    The hit & run is the big one.
    May have to attend a private or community college cdl program.
    Your state probably pay for it which makes it free to you.
    Where is your location; state and nearest town/city?

    I took my friends car to go wash it. When driving out of the neighborhood and in the middle of a turn I looked down at my phone as i was receiving a call and i look up and hit a parked car back left fender. I left the scene scared not knowing what to do so I took the car to go wash it still to calm down. I then an hour after this happened i returned to the scene because i wanted to leave a note or try to contact the person of whos car I hit but the police were already their and they gave me a ticket for misdemeanor hit and run.

    United Truck Driving School may be near you.
    If so, this school has programs for free tuition.

    Government Programs

    United Truck Driving School is approved by the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE). Approval to operate means that the Bureau has determined and certified that an institution meets minimum standards established by the Bureau for integrity, financial stability, and educational quality, including the offering of bona fide instruction by qualified faculty.
    With the help of government funding programs, many truck driver training students get funding to cover part or all of their CDL training costs. The Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) is one such program. WIOA helps to strengthen the national workforce by helping individuals gain the skills necessary to get and retain high-quality jobs. We also partner with vocational rehabilitation counselors to help disabled individuals find employment.
