I am looking at going to grad school for planning and have been browsing Planner job postings for city governments. I noticed that most explicitly require a valid DL and a good driving record. While this makes sense with need to drive government owned vehicles, I wanted to know if anyone could elaborate on the requirement. Specifically I have a DWI from 5 years ago but have a valid license now. Am I automatically disqualified or do they have some hiring discretion? Also, do private consulting firms have the same requirements? Thanks for any insight.
