    Hello everyone.
    I live in California. My question is: How many points on my driving record is too many to become a package car driver? Is this in the contract, or just ups policy?

    Ha! Ok. I didnt word that question very well. How clean does my driving record have to be to start package car driving? Is there a certain number of points that will disqualify me? I work in California.

    No not yet. I might be good. I didnt want to bring it up until I go to dmv and check. Thought I would ask here. Anyone know?

    It used to be had to be clean for 3 years of all moving violations, not sure if that still true.

    I would think the job description at would have this information. If not, there should be a point of contact on that site--I would contact that person, either by phone or e-mail.

    On it says that you only need a valid drivers license in that state. I always thought there was more to it than that. Anyone else have any info on this? thanks.

    You need one year of no infractions and I believe no more than 2 in the last three years.

    We needed a clean record for a year and no more than 3 moving violations prior to that. At least I think that's what it was... With every package I deliver a brain cell dies...

    No (none!) moving violations in the last 12 months. No serious violations in the last three years. Serious violations are DWI, DUI, wreckless driving, etc.

    It's a fact!

    Speeding tickets are a plus as is littering cause UPS thinks you can speed down the street and fire the packages out the door.

    As with everything at UPS it all depends on who you know. I've yet to hear of any one rule at UPS that is carved in granite and is enforced equally at every center nation wide. If they needed drivers right this minute they would bend the rules.
