Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Please be patient while I research and compose a reply for you.
While you won't be automatically disqualified, a criminal conviction is grounds to reject your application at the discretion of the DRE.
You will have to disclose your felony conviction on your application and to make a narrative statement explaining it. The California DRE is particularly concerned about crimes involving violence or theft and fraud. So working with a local lawyer to try to find some explanation that would make the DRE willing to overlook your conviction may be helpful.
Frankly, my educated guess is that you'd be denied and, if so, you'd have to put together some kind of package showing the extent of your rehabilitation since 2008, which would best be assembled by a lawyer, and they you'd have to appeal the denial.
It's not impossible for you to get your license, but it's likely to be a battle.
I don't think you'll find the same answer on Google, because I didn't copy it from Google or anywhere else.
Did it ever occur to you that the answer may be similar because it's perfectly correct?
A conviction for felony fraud is a major impediment to any job anywhere, but all the more so when a license is involved unless you can come forward with enough to show complete rehabilitation.
