    I don't see why a speeding ticket would prevent it. They look for accidents and moving violations... that sort of thing.

    Wudnt that count as a moving violation though. Also I heard you cant have any violations in last year? Is that just accidents though? Im confused

    No you must have a clean driving record with nothing on it for 1 year to qualify. It is a requirement to qualify and is stated on the bid sheet for first time drivers. Once you qualify as a package car driver then it no longer matters. Just to address the above a speeding ticket is a moving violation...

    Speeding is a moving violation.

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

    Can't apply until may. It's probably just a seasonal driver bid anyway. U don't want that.

    Just sign it. The worst they can do is say no or pass you over because of your speeding ticket. Sign everything, even if you don't think you're eligible.

    i don't agree here. If they were to get hired then the company found out they had a ticket they could be fired for dishonesty.

    So what your saying is... Speeding is a moving violation?

    duly noted. :)

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Unless the bid sheet clearly outlines the qualifications, including driving record, then the OP would not be dishonest by simply signing the bid sheet. UPS will pull his abstract and decide from there whether to hire him or not.l
