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.

I have a federal felony on my background over 7 years ago. Making material false statement to a federal officer. No monetary gain or fraud was committed. Got my GA license after submitting my application, certified court records and personal statement.

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.
