    I got a DUI 4 years ago and have been at UPS for 8 years now. Will I be able to get a driving position with this on my record??????

    Most places you can drive with 3 points on license. DUI points should come off after 3yrs, although you pay higher insurance for 5. Usually dui is 5 points, but either way, it should be off your record. Check with the bmv.

    Fairly sure you should be fine to drive in package.. I think UPS only goes back 3 years as far as checking your driving record. Not quite so sure about feeders, but I know a second DUI disqualifies you from holding a CDL for life.

    As long as you pass a DOT physical and can obtain a chauffeurs license don't see a reason not too.

    Why would the OP need a chauffeurs license? Recular class C and pass DOT is good enough.
    ​And yes, enough time has passed that you should be ok.

    I can usually drive, but today I struggled.

    Luckily, my 3-wood was working for me.:wink2:

    Iowa is one state that requires a chauffeurs license to drive for UPS.

    It's been awhile since I scrutinized the bid, but when I last saw it a DUI within 3 or 4 years (I forget which) automatically disqualified you (and more than one? or two? overall) so you should be good.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Missouri also. Need a class e here. Not sure if still this way but in Illinois u have
    to take an actual driving test with a vehicle that has that classification.
  11. That's weird, I didn't have to get one to drive for FedEx Express in Iowa. Is there any reason it would be different between the two companies?

    I should be home in time to catch the end and curse out the TV for my fantasy drivers not coming in as well as I want them to.
