Well there is no reason you should not be able to. You must have a high school deploma or GED. You will have to pass basic math and english skills. Then a physical test which will not be too hard. Then you will have to pass a basic knowledge test and backround check. They will also piss test you somewhere after testing. Then you will go to training and be tested there once that is over with if you can get past your probationary period you should be set for the long haul. So long as none of your privious charges keep you from owning a fire arm.

So many States, who knows how they all assess for sure. In general with your juvenile record it will matter how you approach it to them, can show how you’ve changed and matured? A bad driving record might not seem like a big deal for a job you may not do a lot of driving for but it says something about you, possibly that you don’t learn your lessons, so how can an employer be sure you’ve learned your juvenile lessons? Even if they are ok with what you’ve done you have to keep in mind how big the hiring pool might be. If they have one or more guys just as qualified but no records ever, chances are you’re out.
