    The longer it's been since your conviction and the longer you've been out seem to affect eligibility. Although my conviction was 22 years ago, I still did not qualify for several companies or schools because I have only been out for a year and a half. Here are some of the reasons I have been given for denial: Haven't held a valid driver's license for at least 3 years, haven't been out of prison for at least 5 years, and that I haven't been out for at least 10 years. One school mentioned that my conviction had to be at least 20 years old to qualify, which it was, but maybe that's holding a lot of people back too.

    As of yet, I have applied with 5 companies that have schools and 5 other independent recruiting agencies... but in the week since have not had a single positive response.

    I will update this if I get one so you can try the same company/agency. If you've learned of one, please post an answer here too.

    You can go to a trucking school and have it financed through the government. It is a loan and is not free - but it's out there. Ask the school for further info.

    As for being a felon - each company's policies are different. They must adhere to whatever their insurance carrier mandates as far as hiring is concerned.

    You need to have at least 5 years out from any conviction for starters. Having a felony record can present a problem. You just have to keep applying to companies and you'll get lucky.

    Having a clean personal driving record is definitely a plus.
