Moment of utter stupidity on my part and believe me i learned my lesson so spare me the lectures
Anyone know if this could hamper my career as a pilot? I obviously dont wanna fork out 75k getting my licence only to find im unemployable in the industry.
Any info appreciated!

In the USA driving records are linked to the FAA but the only one that will cause a problem is a DUI (driving under the influence) and rightly so !
I believe drugs and alcohol are the main factors as clearly they dont mix with aviation.
Every application is reviewed once it arrives at CAMI by examiners for completeness, accuracy, and abnormal medical history or findings. This includes a required query, with the airman?s permission, to the National Driver Register for information pertaining to an airman?s driving record. This review looks for convictions involving driving while intoxicated by, while impaired by, or while under the influence of drugs or alcohol; also suspensions or revocation of driving privileges due to alcohol or drug involvement.
Only mentions driving under the influence....hopefully ill be ok considering 'careless driving' is a less serious charge than being under the influence and i didnt receive a driving suspension at all.
Anyone have any first hand knowledge?
