  • Traffic Tickets

    On the LEO employment application it states to list any/all traffic violations. I haven't recevied any in the last 5 years but know I've gotten a couple tickets many years ago (10-15 years ago). I don't remember exactly the details of the tickets it was so long ago, but I know I need find out, and list them.

    I called DMV and they sent me a form to request a copy of my driver's history. The form states the history will go back only 3 years which doesn't help me. DMV says that's all I can get. Anyone know where I can get my "complete" driver's history?

      I agree that if the traffic offenses are over 5-years-old, they will have little to no bearing on your getting hired. If you are asked about them, be honest and accept responsibility.

        The problem is the application says "list all" and I know people have been DQ'd for leaving things out. I'm not worried about tickets affecting the application, I'm worried about inadvertently leaving one out.

            list what you can remember and put the form from dmv showing they have no record,,,with your application with a side note on it. or just call the recruiter, explain this to him, and ask if they want that form with your appl.

              traffic tickets

              List them on the application to the best of your memory, along with the ones you know will appear on your MVR. Discuss the older tickets with the recruiter and the background investigator. I don't see it as an issue as long as you're honest about it.

                I'd list them ALL & put the dates of the real old ones in parentheses. That way they can't say you left stuff out & if they REALLY want to know about it they can look it up. I don't think those old tickets are a problem, though.
