If I score high enough I will be invited to their apprenticeship program.

    It shouldn't have any effect with respect to union membership. Where a driving record becomes a problem is usually how an employer's insurance company reacts to the violations against your license. Keep in mind that even though you might have violations most insurance companies will not disqualify you as an operator of a company vehicle if you take an approved drivers class.
    If it doesn't go easy, you are not using a big enough hammer.

    Thanks for your reply Joe. I'm hoping to get on board with the UA instead of a non-union shop. I have training and some experience with HVAC already, also have extensive mechanical experience with electrical motors, do UA locals take that into consideration?
