    It's not the truck driving school who determines if a felon can take their course. It's the trucking company that determines if they are going to hire you. Usually a trucking company won't hire a felon unless it's at least 3-5 years since the conviction and no other charges since then. They also look at the driving record. If you have a clean record they are more likely to take a second look at you. It is the trucking company's insurance company that has to be appeased in the hiring of you.

    Yes, I am sure almost any of the schools will take you as long as you have a check to pay them.

    Trucking companies will not hire you if you are a felon, no matter how old it is. I have a felony that is 13 years old and they still use that excuse. BULL if you ask me!!

    That is not true 13 year old felon I have been online today. You should not shoot someone's dreams and ambitions down without knowing facts. I have found trucking schools that will allow me to attend and be apart of their program offered, but they require 10 years. These are schools that put you right to work. Yes it is true talk to CR England, Catlaw Trucking School, oh hey how about RoadMasters. I know I have done my research maybe you should do yours. I have 8 years in and can not get a heads up. I am not giving up though. There has to be someone that will take less than 10.They did tell me I could attend the school just not promised or guaranteed a job. They said try the smaller trucking companies I would have a better shot. It is up to the trucking company. What kind of felony do you have? It can not be a violent crime, or drug related. Have you asked these questions. These questions are important after all your pursuing a new career right?
