So I got my CDL back in June. About a week or so after getting my license switched over from a regular license to a CDL I got a letter in the mail stating that my license would be suspended for an out of state speeding ticket I got 2yrs prior. When I called the court in the state it was issued in, they told me that the ticket wasn’t entered into the system until 21 days after it was issued(so I wasn’t able to pay) and that a court date was mailed out to an address I no longer lived at. I was told by both courts (My state and issuing state) to just pay the ticket since I was leaving to go start trucking in the upcoming weeks. I paid the ticket, went through with training and completed it. The day I was supposed to be assigned my truck safety called me to tell me that my license was suspended. I called both courts back, the issuing state said they didn’t suspend me that I needed to call my state in which they said that being that I paid the fines my license were suspended because I plead guilty. I’m now reinstated as of last week. So my question is could anyone please point me the direction of a trucking company that will hire me coming off a recent suspension and basically on experience since I technically only finished the training? Thanks all in advance.

What was the ticket for?
If speeding, how much over the limit?
Where is your location; state and nearest city/town.?
20 miles over and I’m in the Raleigh North Carolina area
20 miles over is the problem. In trucking that's reckless driving.
You'll need to apply with 2nd chance companies such as Western Express and TransAm.
There's more if those two don't hire you.
Try with Carolina Logistic also.
Carolina Logistic Inc – North Carolina Trucking Company
I was with western when I was in training. TransAm said I needed 3 months experience
I'll see if I can find any others that give a 2nd chance.
Also try Facebook and Craigslist.
Both have trucking groups. A few drivers on this forum found jobs there and they had worse records than yours, much worse.
