Im preparing to join the Air Force and have a DUI from 9 years ago Thats been taken care of (community service completed/all fines payed, etc).
I have my eye on a job in the Air Force that requires a TOP SECRET (TS) clearance but my recruiter is saying my DUI will prevent me from getting a TS Clearance.
Im also dating a girl who has two DUIs and since we live in California, and she did a hit and run during the 2nd DUI, She was charged with a felony. HOWEVER, She payed all the fines/dud the classes and even went into rehab and no longer has issues. If we do decide to get married, will her hit and run felony affect my ability to get or retain a TS Clearance?
Im also concerned about my driving history preventing me from getting a TS Clearance.
***Will my driving history prevent me from getting a TS Clearance? Heres my driving history for the last 10 yrs:
1 DUI IN 2009, 2 “driving without registration/insurance” tickets, 1 texting while driving ticket in 2013, 1 speeding ticket (going 80 in a 65 on the freeway) in 2014 and 1 ticket for cutting off an officer.
The reason I was caught driving with out insurance/license/registration = I was poor for a long time (because I’d all the fees I had to pay for the DUI), and couldn’t afford registration/insurance.
