james in Gaffney, South Carolina said: I asked this question before(probably in the wrong place-sorry)but I would really like an answer. I have two speeding tickets on my MVR,one in 06 and one in 08, for speeding 10 or less miles over the limit.I am thinking of going to truck driving school and was wondering if this will hurt my chances at employment when I am finished?

yes it could get pre approved before you pay that much money i went to trucking school 6 week course finshed with a 99%grade and cant find a job and i have not had a ticket in 6 years but they want a spotless recored and that takes 7 years try wernner or crst they are easy companys apply b efore you go to school i am talking from exp inless you want to find your self working for a moveing company and that sucks

If you have tickets on your record, this will very much hurt your employment status. Remember, also, CSA 2010. It might be a good idea for you to get more familiar with the new laws and regulations. You can also email me at urgentlegalhelp@gmail.com

I don't have any violations except a couple excessive length tickets that nobody cares about but I've had two carriers put bogus stuff on my DAC I have found out later. Be warned if you work for Swift or Super Service they will destroy your DAC if you quit, also told JB Hunt does this as common practice and will do if you change your mind at orientation. Your best bet dealing with multiple violations is just focus on local and/or smaller companies. They don't run DAC or NDR which all major carriers do. When you see and ad saying recent MVR required is the signal for not running DAC or NDR because if they did they wouldn't want a MVR. Smaller companies you will be happier with also. This is what someone above mentioned and I second the thought. Here's the link.. www.fleetdirectory.com/

[Not in Quebec, I'm in the US (VPN)] @Mauser.. most large or long haul companies will not because they will only allow 3 moving violations in the past 3 years. There may be a company that makes an exception but being over double the limit of most companies it will tough. You might try USA Trucking or Werner maybe. Not good companies but easier to get hired and you will not be happy but if you can get on then just drive safely and after the violations are mostly over 3 years old then apply to a better company. You may be better off trying to get a local driving job. Get a copy of your MVR at the DMV and make sure what shows on that because that's the only thing a local company wants and will request. Good luck to you

Hopalong, good for you that you are sober now. The grim reality is that you have not just 1 dwi...not 2...but 3!!!!!!! Most companies wont hire you with 1...lucky if you can find someone who will. But 3!!!!!?????? I am honestly suprised that you were given your cdl back at all. Never heard of anyone getting a 3rd chance. If I were you, I would try looking elsewhere...not in trucking. save yourself a lot of grief and paperwork.

Best bet is to become an Owner-Operator and not deal with the company driver deal, Youll be alot better that way and wouldent have to worry about the company's bs asmuch as you would as a company driver!

Perkins Scam in Charlotte, North Carolina

41 months ago

Perkins Logistics and specialized transportation, Noblesville IN a Debt Bondage Company .l Perkins lease commercial vehicles to C.D. L. drivers and in turn dispatches freight, to the drivers. Then takes deductions from the driver’s settlements which in most cases leave the driver owing the company money each week resulting in the driver having no pay, this goes on and on for months until the drivers quit. They then release the same trucks and it starts all over again.

In addition to what have previously mentioned, They take money out of the drivers maintenance escrow accounts and then will replace the money over and over again. When a driver leaves their employ they are rarely refunded the escrow money (another source of income covered up). Several others are they mark up parts sold to driver for repairs at their maintenance facility and add undisclosed fees to the deductions from the drivers settlements.

They only dispatche freight other carriers would not take and the freight in most cases will cost you more to haul than is paid. They will threaten you with a bad DAC report if you fail to do as you are told. You will be told you were in a hole owing the company money from the previous week and will receive no pay for your work. (The company store scam). You are told you must pay taxes on the money paid the truck even though you were never paid a dime. This also known as Debt bondage, a practice used by many lease scams.

I have 3 moving violations all in 2009 all non-cdl related (2 5mph or less, 1 10mph over) and the only cdl related where in 2008 I had 1 preventable, In 2007 I had 2 non preventable (no injuries, little damage, my truck needed tow, all non dot reportable).
Hardly any company will look at me and the ones that do look at me arent hiring in my area.
July 2008 was the last time i drove otr I and i would love nothing more but to get back out on the road again!
Ive tried werner, swift, cr england, and western express with no luck. I have about 3 years otr exp with covenant and werner and i also have my endorsements, I have held a cdl (either class a or b) for about 10 years now.
Any suggestions or advise or of any decent companies hiring otr or running 1-35 east in my area that might take a look at me or hire me?

I am looking for a trucking company who sponsors someone with child support,I have been driving for over 20 yrs.This year 2010 I went to the D.M.V to renew my license I passed my C.D.L test.But when it was time to obtain my license the technician's reply was that I had a red flag,and could not obtain it.In 2003,I was driving O.T.R. married to my wife at that time and have two kids,I financially supported my family since we got married and my children were born(my kids are my life),in regards to wife's luxurious life style she decided to file child support against me while I was O.T.R.when I got home she started acting her peculiar,having late night outs,and getting strange phone calls at odd hours of the night.I soon came to find out by her mother and my mother that she was having an affair,we divorced soon after that.In just a few months(3-4months)after we divorced,she married that man,and I stayed single for several years,not trusting women,and being afraid of being hurt.She soon discovered he had been deceiving her,he was legally married to another woman,she divorced him.Since things didn't work out with her marriage,in the past she tried coercing me to get back together with her,I said "NO"because I could never trust her again.Since our divorce I made several attempts during the years,to see my children,during each year,including the holidays,I would take my employment checks and buy Christmas presents and planning to give her money for my children,followed by her "NO SHOWS",after she promised me to meet me at a designated time and place.My children are my responsibility and making sure she has enough financial support is my job.But working at these fly-by-night agencies that pay $8.00 min wage doesn't help.I became homeless in 2005 due to being garnished off of min wage,now I'm having a hard time finding employment(no one wants to hire me,because of being red flagged on my child support).Since this whole losing battle began,I tried to reason with her.

I hate to rain on your parade but you're going to keep on getting turned down.Those violations are too soon to even consider hireing you,mainly for insurance reasons.Then all those violations has to be at least 3 yrs old.Some companies will go as far as 5 yrs old before considering you and you got 3 violations in 3 yrs thats even worse.Since you were driving 15 miles over the posted speed limit,you better find out if those moving violations are reckless charges.Reckless next to abadonment is the 2 worst things to have on your record.

Sorry it's taken me so long replieing back.So any new updates on the job search?Hope good news.Everybody makes mistakes and deserves a second chance if offenses and tickets are'nt too severe,but unfortunately the trucking indistry does'nt see it that way and even more strict now then ever before.
