Default Airline Apps Question

So I'm going through everything and a few things i'm curious about.

On the driving history portion/infractions. Does that include speeding/parking tickets? Violation? Convicted?

AM I going to need to get my driving records from the DMV or is that something the regionals/airlines do when they do the background on you?



Also, on SkyWest's application site, for education. Do I put where I get my degree from or do I put in every school that I attended (for credit)?

Put everything you can. Better to put too much, than not enough. And yeah put down any kind of driving citation. For example, I put down running a red light

It's always better to include everything in the application. If it comes up in an interview (and it usually will) that you didn't include everything, it is a VERY large hurdle to overcome.

When it comes up in the interview, treat it the same as any other hiccups that occur in a career: These are the facts, this is what I learned from the situation, and, most importantly, I didn't repeat the mistake.

Just for some trivia: The #1 checkride failure according to an article in Flight Training magazine a few years ago--- Initial CFI.

Parking tickets are not driving violations...
