Some trucking companies hire felons seven to 10 years after the convictions. Truck driving schools that accept felons include Lincoln Land Community College, Dootson School of Trucking and TruckSchoolsUSA.com. Individuals cannot become truck drivers with felony convictions for vehicle violations, vehicular manslaughter or trafficking of controlled substances, materials or weapons.
Trucking companies that sometimes hire felons with convictions at least 10 years old include Swift and Celadon. Both companies also provide training. If convictions are at least seven years old, Roehl Transport accepts applications from felons and provides training for hirees. Some companies that hire felons on a case-by-case basis and provide training include Millis Transfer, FFE, Schneider National, USA National and Tyson Foods.
