Can a felon get a cdl license in wi?
Depends on what exactly you're going for. If you're going for a Class C, Class B, or Class A with a "no tractor-trailers" restriction, and you can find a company which will gi…ve you on-the-job training, then you would get a copy of the CDL handbook and study it. Once you've done that, you'd take the written tests for General Knowledge, Air Brakes (if applicable), Combination Vehicles (for Class A), and any endorsements you might be required to have (hazmat, tanker, passenger, etc.). Then you'd have a learner's permit, and could train on-the-job until you were ready for the driving test at the DMV (in which case, you would be responsible for providing a test vehicle, which your company may or may not do). If you want to get into driving tractor-trailers, you really need to go to a truck driving school.
Z is not an endorsement - it is a restriction, which requires the holder to have his DOT medical certificate renewed annually, instead of bi-annually.
Unless you've been exonerated of those charges, you're still a felon. Once you've been released, you're an ex-con, but you remain a felon. This isn't posted in order to be con…descending - there's a reason I put this in here, and you'll see why as you read on. I just want to make sure you're not under any false impressions. Now, getting a CDL - you can do that easily enough. You just go to a truck driver training school. The difficulty is going to be in finding employment, especially if your felony conviction occurred in the last 10 years. Before you go spending $3000 - $5000 at a truck driver training school, here's what I suggest: Shop around. Contact various companies, see who'll hire inexperienced drivers, and be up front with them about your felony conviction - you need to find out who'll hire a convicted felon. Now, this is where the felony conviction is going to hurt you. Most entry level companies require their drivers to obtain a hazmat endorsement. To obtain that, you will be subjected to a TSA background check - a felony conviction on your record automatically disqualifies you. I know Swift requires a hazmat endorsement, and I believe most of your major entry level companies (Schneider, Werner, Knight's, Central, Covenant, etc.) do, as well. You might want to try TMC - they're exclusively a flatbed company, and I think it's possible that they don't require a hazmat endorsement. If not, you may want to see if a major construction company which has an entry level training programme would consider you as a dump truck driver. In Texas, they normally pull asphalt year-round, so you could find consistent work there.
A convicted felon can get a CDL (but they can't get a hazmat endorsement). However, they would be best advised to ensure that they've found employers who would be willing to h…ire them once they obtained a CDL.
Yes Added: There is no prohibition in the law to your getting one. The felony conviction, however, will prevent you from being able to obtain a hazardous materials endorse…ment, and may prevent you from driving a bus with children depending on the type of conviction.

Yes. Your chances of finding employment as a CDL driver are a different matter, however. Most employers will not hire you if you have more than three points in the last three …years, if you have a DUI conviction within the last five years, or if you have multiple DUI convictions.
Yes. However, you won't be able to obtain a hazardous materials endorsement, and the felony conviction - especially if it happened within the last ten years - is going to brin…g a lot of bias against you in finding employment as a CDL truck driver.
Yes you can but what you want is a job using your CDL. Most companies will hire someone with a DWI after 10 (clean) years have passed. Some will look at you after 5 years but …most want 10. If you have more than one DWI you will most likely be done. If your DWI is recent you should either wait to get a CDL or decide on something else. Drive Safe, Tanya Bons
In the State of Ohio it takes about three hours to get a CDL License. About one hour to pass the written exam and about two hours to pass the driving exam. How long it wi…ll take you to prepare to be able to pass those tests is a different question!
No you cannot. Sorry.
Yes, but you must pass the hazmat tests and the TSA Threat Assessment in order to get the HAZMAT endorsement. Only certain types of felonies will permanently disqualify you. C…heck with your state DMV and also check the TSA website at the related link below. For many types of felonies, the prohibition against getting an endorsement only applies if it has been less than 7 years since the date of conviction and 5 years from the date of release from incarceration.
Yes. However, your chances of finding employment as a CDL driver with a felony conviction are slim, and you won't be eligible to receive a Hazmat endorsement.
Some UPS vehicles require a CDL, and some do not.

Commercial buses of any weight class which are designed to transport more than 15 persons (including the driver) . Any vehicle of any weight class which is transporting quantities of hazardous materials which require the display of hazmat placards under the FCSR Although exempted from requiring a CDL under the federal regulations, many states and individual fire departments require their vehicle operators to possess a CDL.
