Each carrier has its own set of rules but many will consider hiring drivers with records of a DUI/DWI.

DUI refers to driving under the influence. DWI refers to driving while intoxicated. In one state, DUI might be the same as DWI, while in another state the two terms could hold different meanings.

Companies typically wait at least three years before hiring drivers that have had a DUI/DWI and often times there may be only one count of DWI/DUI within a prescribed time frame.

According to our research, here is a list of trucking companies that may hire drivers with a DUI/DWI.
