Character and Fitness – I've gotten a lot of tickets

Postby FormerChild » Tue Aug 29, 2017 4:08 pm

Saw another thread asking a character and fitness question so it made me question whether this would be an issue … I've received roughly 8 traffic/moving tickets over the past decade, 3 speeding, 2 driving without inspection, 1 driving without registration, and 1 for rolling through a stop sign. I also have an 2 citations (given for same occasion) from college involving booze and not being 21, one of which is a public drunkenness (over 7 years ago) … I've read things before about this and seems like I'll be good, but just want to ask … do I have anything to worry about?

You will have to disclose and then provide documentation. Some jurisdictions may require you to come in and answer some questions about your apparent issues with driving (possible to happen but not a "for sure" thing).

Are all of the citations old? If so, that will help, if not old it still wont be a major issue but it weighs against you.

That all being said - disclose and provide paperwork. You may have some further questions to answer, but ultimately it wont be an issue.

As long as you fully disclose all the facts/circumstances and don't try to hide anything you'll be fine. You may get some follow-up questions but I don't see anything that would actually bar you from getting admitted. The people who get into real trouble are usually those who either lie or fail to disclose something that the committee finds.
