Clean Driving Record

A clean driving record is required to pursue a career as an AZ commercial driver. Minor offences such as speeding tickets are unlikely to have an impact on your career, but offences like driving under the influence, or having a high volume of moving vehicle offences, can make it difficult to obtain work.

Criminal Record

Most companies will request a recent criminal record check of their new employees. Although this is not a requirement for the AZ program, it is recommended that you obtain a criminal record check before you begin looking for employment.
