    Not all tickets will show on MVR. Small towns sometimes just want the revenue; pay the ticket and that's the last of it.
    Post #10 is the correct answer.
    As what's already been recommended by other drivers; get a copy of your MVR and whatever shows on there is what you put on job applications.
    If they're a certain age, may not even have to list them.

    Yes — if you don’t they’ll find out anyway when they run your MVR.

    Typically three years is what trucking companies look for in terms of speeding or excessive speeding (15+) over posted speed.

    However, DUI’s, reckless driving and others vary from company to company. Most reckless 5 years, DUI’s (one) 5-10 years.

    The first thing would be getting a copy of your MVR. It's pretty cheap depending on what state you are from. If there is a ticket showing up there that was dismissed in court, there is a process in getting it removed. But then again it depends on what state you are from.
     
    JR2001 Thanks this.

    You have to list all convictions. If you pled, or were found guilty for those tickets you will have to list them.

    If it was dismissed, or reduced to a nonmoving violation then you do not list them.
     
    JR2001 Thanks this.

    I got a copy of my MVR and the only thing listed is my ticket from October for failure to stop for a school bus. But it says adjudication withheld. Does anyone know if that would affect the possibility of me getting hired?

    Talk to the trucking companies you want to work for they can answer that question for you. Fyi recruiters say one thing & safety department has to sign off also.

    Sorry for the late reply, but when applying, do I still put moving violations even if there weren’t any officer on sight. Like I didn’t get pulled over for any, I’m just not sure if it’d still qualify as a moving violation. Thanks in advance.

    If it's not on record. There's nothing to admit too.

    How did you get a ticket if no officer was there?
