The two speeding tickets are the killers. In the trucking world, speeding 15mph+ over the speed limit is considered reckless driving. Your chances being accepted by any carrier's insurance company is slim to none. I have never heard of a driver paying for his own insurance unless he owns his own truck.

2005- lillegal turn /lane change violations are frowned on...but not death by itself .

2005- speeding 75 in a 60 ...15 mph over ...if MVR reads 75 in a 60 and not 10-19 mph over you are held to saying...15 mph over...anything 15 or more is viewed badly.nn


2006-90mph in a 70 =20 mph over...if it reads 20mph over on MVR you're stuck claimng 20 mph


2007-driving without license...bad ,real bad... espcially if it was due to revocation ,and it's just barely 1yr old...


these infractions are all pretty new and at only 24 you will not be driving...that's ok it's not the high paying job opportunity the general public thinks it is...A warehouse job at 12-15 hr with ...paid overtime...meets or exceeds most big company OTR pay ...I like driving but would rather run as a yard dog by the hour paid for all my time ...My only point to you is that if you are viewing OTR driving as a way to earn big bucks , and are stressing your MVR holding you back from that "BIG" pay day do not ,because it's not the big bucks the general public thinks it is...and certainly not what schools play it up to be...One might wonder why all the EX-OTR drivers left OTR truckings "BIG BUCKS" to come instruct at a cdl mill for $12.00-$15.00 hr ...WINK

The points really have nothing to do with you paying your tickets (fines, costs, and fees). The points system was developed to track your driving record and to indicate what kind of risk you are.

The insurance companies insure the company and you would be their driver so you wouldn't be paying your "own" insurance.

If the infractions happened over a 2 year period how can they have only happened when you were 21?

Bottom line 2 tickets over 15+mph and a driving without= no driving job until atleast 3 yrs from the last conviction.

I don' know of any insurance company that would insure you to drive a truck with your record, even if you owned it, and if by some chance you did find one willing to write a policy you would not have any money left because it would all be used to pay the premiums. Besides that companies don't do that sort of thing for company drivers.

As others have stated you have what amounts to 2 reckless driving convictions. It does not matter if you were convicted or reckless driving or not, that is how it is viewed. I do not know what state you live in, but it is possible for those two convictions to show up on a standard MVR for up to 10+ years. If they do remain on your MVR for longer than the 3 years you believe then it will be most likely be at least 5 years from the date of the last conviction before companies are not going to automatically deep six your applications. Same goes with the driving while suspended. All 3 together are a real killer, and it has more to do with the nature of the violation than the points.

At this point even if your speeding tickets drop off in 2009 you still are dealing with driving while suspended, so you might as well forget about truck driving until 2010 at the earliest at which time get a copy of your MVR and if anything still shows then hang it up until 2012. That is assuming you do not add any more to your record.

And what exactly does this have to do with it?

I was 22 when I got my CDL, and I'm 23 now...And I have 0 points!

I think it's a great thing to try and step up and get away from all of that, but unfortunately you're not likely to find a company that will take you. You're considered too much of a risk at this point.

As stated otherwise, waiting is the best plan for now.

And please...PLEEAASSEE. STOP playing the age thing...whether you are 21 or 51...accidents kill. Doesn't matter the age of the occupant of the driver's seat...accept responsibility for your actions and DON'T blame it on being 21.issedoff:
