when i was younger like 17-21 i got close to 40 traffic violations, all have been taken care of with classess, supervision, fines ect. Now my question is i am 30yrs and trying to join Navy, on practice ASVAB got a 84, and now have found might not be able to join. My question is can i ask for a waiver or will the recruiting officer have to be the one that thinks i am worth asking for one. I am not joining the Navy because i have no other options, i in fact make 100k per year no criminal record other then traffic violations, marrried, and a good person that just wants to serve my country. Now i am worried that having a lead foot when younger will keep me from joining. Thanks for any help or info.

Might want to rethink that patriotism. I have several friends who were just "downsized" out of the Navy. 2 of them had over ten years in and had made decent rank. 30 is a bit old to jump into something that might not be a career after all.

As far as the tickets go, 40 is a HUGE black eye on your record if many of them show up.

I know in the Air Force, the rule is that if you have more than 5 in a 365 day period, you're disqualified. Why? Because that many shows a blatant disregard for following rules and the law. However, they won't show up on your driving record, and it was so long ago. I would think a waiver would be easy. (I'm an AF Recruiter).

40 violations? Wow.

I bet many police departments thank you for all the new gear they were able to purchase.

You need to talk to a recruiter, but in this downsizing era I'd say the odds are significantly against you.

Where they all moving violations like speeding, or parking, tail light out, loud music?
