I'm having trouble remembering the months, much less the years that I had speeding tickets. Two of them in my lifetime. I can't remamber any details whatsoever. The DMV records shows nothing as the last was I think in 1994, but not for sure. Do I need to disclose these at all? I'm afraid that my lack of knowledge about them may look like evasive manuvering to an interviewer. Anyone with similar circumstance? Thanks-

"Americans are generally pretty retarded."--Oakum Boy

Yet you can't remember when or where you violated the law. Hmmmm.

...your insurance company might have a record. Otherwise--just put down "2 tickets for speeding--don't remember details...no longer on record".

Or you could just say.."dude...I'm a pilot...I was drunk...I can't remember all that crap!"

If you get a print out of your driving record and they are not on it, there is no record for the company to find.
Anything over 5 yrs is usually purged from state record

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the DMV is not the only agency/entity to keep records. For instance, consider if you get a citation for speeding, go to court, plea guilty, and then are sentenced to a reduced fine and probation before judgement. Your DMV record will actually have no record of the entire event, nor would your insurance company. However, the police records and court records will retain information regarding the citation and the court appearance.

You must read the airline applications carefully. If they say "Have you ever pled guilty" then even though your DMV record is clean, you may want to consider reporting the citation. Court records last a very long time, as do police citation records.

Just something else to think about.

I think there's a form available from the FSDO near you that you can send to the state and federal gov't for a fee of $2.00

It takes a few weeks to get the info back to you, but it should contain all your driving information. Call the FSDO and check it out.

It was over 10 years ago no one cares. The criminal/FBI /finger check only goes back 10 years.

Of course you can always put down that you were too drunk at the time to remember.

Honesty is still the best policy. I would tell them you got a few tickets way back when and dont remember much of the details. You record will indicate clean and it will prove that you are being honest and up front.

If your application is for Southwest, rack up as many speeding tickets as you can. They prefer some fast taxi experience.

Just picked up my new toy yesterday... Red Acura NSX. Pulled over twice in two days.... no tickets though. First wanted to know what kind of car it was and the second wanted to inform me that I had to use my blinker while merging on the hiway and the 55mph limit applies to the onramp too!

Enjoy the NSX... Could the fact that you're still on RSV in CVG have anything to do with you being Broke in CVG?:D

Every time I pass one of those reminder radar machines on my bike I don't even register a speed. It's a beautiful thing as I can't seem to drive 55.

Do the radar jamers as advertised on the radio really work? Not that I really have a problem driving my '93 toyota or escort. But one day.....yeah one day!
