what's a bad driving record?
I was recently pumpkin axed into my second week of training due to my bad driving record. When I sent in my application, I also sent in a copy of my driving record, the pumpkin powers told me that was fine, not to worry, etc, go ahead and go to training. Well, I went - and did well! - but learned that they don't do the checks until you are in class. They said they waited until they got the actual DMV report to make their decision. What a waste of my time and theirs when they already had it in hand!! My point is this: I have one ticket from 2000 (1-9 over) and one from 1999 (10-19 over) and 3 that are over five years old. I have a few non-moving violations on there for not getting a city sticker or inspection (including a recent one), but no dui's, no arrest record, etc. I KNOW I am not the only wanna be driver out there with a record like mine. I was told they take into consideration the past three years (two tickets) with no tickets in the past year (which I only had a non moving violation ticket).
I'm not ready to give up, I know I want to do this, and I will. I plan on sending out a ton of applicaitons this week to the other companies on my list who train. Any feedback, comments from anyone??
