How will a past bad driving record affect my chances of securing a CDL job?

My past three years are spotless.No incidents.But prior to that,especially like ten years and before,my driving record was horrendous.I have a drinking and driving charge from about 1991.I also lost my license,like 2 or 3 times,for being cited,multiple times.Does anyone have experience with this?Can anyone relate?How will this affect my chances of acquiring a CDL job,after I am finished with my schooling?

    If you drive clean for five years your past convictions will not affect your job.. In nova scotia anyways im not sure about other provinces.

    well some jobs look back 3 years, others look back 5 years, the drinking and driving charge im not sure if they’ll still see that or not because that charge would be an automatic “no” but since its 10 years ago or more they probably won’t see it, but a job might actually get your entire driving record if they choose and just count the past 3 or 5 years, but doesn’t hurt to keep applying

    Most carriers look back 3 yrs, but many if they see a DUI anytime back will not hire you. For most driving compaanies, DUI in the past is the Death Penalty (Never drive again)

    I WAS FIRED BECAUSE MY FRONT BUMPER FELL OFF MY RIG WHILE I WAS DRIVING. THE BUMPER DIDN’T CAUSE ANY ACCIDENTS AND IT WAS KNOCKED OUT OF THE ROAD WHEN MY RIG RAN OVER IT. I CALLED HEADQUARTERS AND WAS TOLD IT WOULD BE A MAINTENANCE ISSUE. MY BOSS SAID IT WAS PREVENTABLE AND I WAS FIRED. ANYONE KNOW IF THIS IS CORRECT? HE ALSO SAID IT WAS GOING ON MY DAC REPORT.
