    They can choose to go as far back as they want, regardless of what the "law" states they can legally use.

    If I were hiring someone as a driver, if they had anything at all on their record, personally, I wouldn't give them a second look, and would consider them a liability. There are plenty of people out there with clean records.

    i may be in luck. i was completing the online app and they asked if i had a dui conviction within the last 5 years and the answer is no. then they ask this question:

    11. Have you been convicted of or pled guilty to more than three (3) moving violations in the past three (3) years?

    i have had 1 the last 5 years. am i ok?

    If you have a DUI ever you can be denied entry in Canada, Thank our own government for giving them computer usage of our records. But they will give you permission if you pay them $250.00 then you will be allowed in. What a bunch of crap!!!! Boycot Canada FISH AND HUNT AMERICA!!! We have as good of hunting and fishing and nicer people than the rude people who live and who overcharge and tax you to death from Canada!!!!
