I have a felony on my background it is over 8 yrs old. I am waiting to hear back from the state. I want to know if there are any felons or anybody that knows someone with a felony, on this forum that may have a license. I would like to know what it took to get the license?

check with a lawyer to see if it's been long enough to have your records sealed. background checks will not pick it up if you can get it sealed. It can be done. I know from experience.

At least 10 years must have passed. I applied with 8 years and was denied. If you get denied, you should ask to withdraw your application so you aren't denied forever.

Depends on what the felony was (it was a financial crime, fraud, etc).

Most states will give you a chance to get your license. What you do after that is WHAT COUNTS.

Tennessee is totally different. Is that where you got your license ? Tennessee allows felons to have their background reviewed before going through the process of licensing.

I originally was turned down for my license because I was still on probation. They requested I reapply after I got off so I applied again earlier this after getting off probation about 5 years ago. Maybe it will work out this time.

Good luck. I applied a couple of years ago and they told me no. It was 8 years post my conviction. They told me to wait 10 years and re-apply. I don't know if I will go through the trouble. I have to take the course, test, pay for bond, fingerprints, application all over again.

Did insurance companies refuse to appoint you when you answered yes to the questions they ask on their applications
