As a Police Officer candidate yes. Not sure how far back they require for a Pistol License.

Yes I did as well when I was trying to get on PD, and NCPD asked for that when I went for finger printing.

I gave PLB a copy of the abstract I got from DMV when I aplied for my pistol license  he ask if there where any others and I said "I dont remember half the ones that where on the sheet I gave you"

thats all there was to do about that.

I did mention I got a ticket in Penn for speeding but thats all I had.

When I did that in the mid 1990's, the abstract only went back 5 years. Not sure how far back it goes nowadays.

yup same. It ended up being an issue for me because the DMV wouldnt give me the full abstract. They said they only keep records for so many years and I needed more paperwork from them to satisfy my investigator.

I was asked to submit one.  I was honest about my history so nothing on it was a surprise.  It never became an issue.

What does your operating a motor vehicle have to do with owning a handgun?

Nothing, it's just another speed bump they can throw in your path.

The thinking is that consistent violations indicate a disregard for the law.  Like I said, I had a pretty messy driving record from when I was younger, but I was honest about it and it wasn't a problem.

I had all my DMV history together before applying - presented my application with copies of my full abstract.

 

BE CAREFUL with Nassau Counties records!!!    They are LOUSY at keeping records! - I've had them tell me "You don't exist"  I've had them tell me "you're all done, nothing is left to resolve"  and then many years later something from many years prior to that statement I get a notice.....   I've gone to court, with their notice to appear, and had them not able to find the file.

 

All of this has happened MULTIPLE TIMES...      

 

 

The upside of getting a pistol license was having to prove everything had been resolved - so when that 1986 ticket popped up (AGAIN!) in 2009 - the good people at SCPLB pulled my original app out of the archives and gave me the paperwork I needed to prove I had resolved the '86 thing.  (DMV of course couldn't find it because Nassau didn't do its job.)

I gave my investigator a lifetime driving record history as required and a lifetime abstract (only if you got any tickets in the last 5 years). I played it safe and sent both. You probably gave them an abstract not a lifetime history. Confusing but they can't make it too easy.
