Default however;

if it did happen,,,, ahem,,, and is found out you will be fired on the spot. people with drinking problems driving 18-wheelers upsets the hell out of me.
perhaps a garbage truck for waste management?

It's good that you've mended your ways. My brother had several a few years ago and had actually lost his license for quite some time. He doesn't drink anymore and hasn't for quite a few years. Time heals. Some don't allow any previous DUI's. Some are more forgiving.

He works for Giant Petroleum which is a pretty reputable company. So you should be able to get on with a reputable company.

Were you convicted and charged formally? I'm surprised that it isn't recognized on your DMV. Have you pulled one to see? If convicted you should have had your license suspended. Did you have a CDL when ticketed for DUI, it should have been reported on your TX license. They might not have reported it yet. I would definately run both a DMV report and DAC to start with.

If you never paid a fine or any type of court action, you might have a bench warrant waiting for you in MO for not taking care of it. I'm kind of left in the dark on the details. BOL and stay off the bottle especially if your driving!

Default re: DWI

Well, a recent DWI is as good as two
strikes against you to begin with.
Most states will revoke your liscence for
a specified period of time ranging from
90 days to a full year.
That means you can't drive anything,
except a bicycle, for the length of
time judged against you.

This happenned to a co-worker freind
of mine in October of last year.
He pulled into a tavern after work
one day and polished off a few to
many while watching the big game
on tv.
Just his luck that a full grown bear
was coming up behind him as he pulled
out of the lot to go home.
BOOM!...he got nailed right then 'n there.

He got a one year suspension ( to include
his CDL ) on his liscence and a $2500
fine for his first offense!
Plus traffic school, re-hab, and all
the other baloney that goes with it.
Not to mention that he had to spend the weekend in jail as it happenned on a
Friday night.
Pretty steep if you ask me but those
are the rules in this state.
After 9 months he has managed to get his
liscense back with all privelages.
They forgave the remaining 3 months on
his suspension for completing the
program with no further incidents.

The problem is nobody will hire him.
Including my outfit where he was
working at the time he got busted.
Even with a previously spotless
work record they won't even talk
to him on the phone.
Companies across the board are adopting
a no tolerance policy on DWI's nowadays.
The standard app. now asks if you've ever
had a DWI/DUI within the last three years.
And, if you have, most won't even look
at you.

The moral is the same as it's always been --
A very simple premise but one many
"professional" drivers can't seem
to follow these days...
