My driver's license is suspended because I got a bunch of tickets. It was the first time and I've paid the tickets. Can I still go for a private pilot's license?


The FAA has a guide on applying for a medical/student license


Near the end, pages 30-33. They ask for consent to review your National Driver Register. Read those pages, see if any of it applies to you.

  • $\begingroup$ Fair enough. I should have clicked on the link and observed that! $\endgroup$ – dalearn May 10 '18 at 12:35
  • $\begingroup$ I don't see how this answers the question? The MedXpress instructions are just instructions for filling out the application, they don't say anything about what may be disqualifying or not. $\endgroup$ – Pondlife May 10 '18 at 17:11
  • $\begingroup$ Read the box at the bottom of Block 18, and 20, on page 33, where it inquires about driving history. I don't know how much you have had to screw up driving to be disqualified for flying - but you are required to consent to them looking into it. There's also this for more info faa.gov/news/updates/?newsId=87125 I was not able to locate anything with this search faa.gov/search/?q=driving+record+disqualification As far as I know, applications go to FAA's OK City office for review for anything that might be questionable. $\endgroup$ – CrossRoads May 10 '18 at 17:26
