What is considered a clean driving record for employment?

If an employer says that I need a clean driving record, what would be considered good enough for employment? I’ve gotten a couple of speeding tickets in my time but I’m hoping that won’t count against me too much.

While a
speeding ticket
or two typically won’t ruin your chances of getting the job, a clean driving record is considered to be one free from points, traffic violations, or accidents. If it’s a requirement of employment that you have a clean driving record, you might not be qualified while you have points on your record.
That said, many employers will still mark your record as clean if you have a minor infraction or two. Additionally, speeding tickets won’t stay on your record forever. Most speeding tickets fall off your record after three years, though some states will keep them for five to 10.
