    Default Driving Record and Firefighter Employment

    I am currently in a Fire Academy and I am just about done. I have a deferred prosecution for a DUI I received about three years ago and a speeding ticket on my driving record. I'm wondering how much this is going to hinder my chances of becoming a firefighter. If anyone has advice I would appreciate it. Much respect and thanks.

    Don't let it get you down I'm on the job with an OUIL but time played a big factor in my case. I recieved mine 6 years ago. Whatever you do DON'T get another one then you won't get a job anywhere. Pay for a taxi!!! There are some fire departments in this country that are soooo strict that even detention in Jr High School will DQ you haha but who wants to work for that dept anyway!!!

    Be smart and call someone for a ride or walk home because if you get a 2nd one then you need to find another line of work.

    All you can do is apply and be honest. Don't try to hide it. If you make it to an interview, it will come up.
