    Hello all, thank you in advance for any advice you may have.
    So I was an absolute moron a few months back, was texting while stopped at at traffic light, was eventually stopped and given a ticket for use of hand held wireless telephone. This fine came with a court date but I called the court the day prior to confirm and they could not fine the ticket # in their records. Long story short, I did not have to appear in court but I did plead guilty and paid the fine.
    So could this hurt my chances of getting my cdl?
     
    The_vett Thanks this.

    Getting the cdl? Absolutely not.

    Getting a good cdl job? Yes. You'll have to do your best to explain and promiss you've learned a lesson.

    Yes, that's a citation but a very minor one. One word of sdvice, keep your license squeaky clean.
