Getting a reckless driving conviction off your record

There is no way to get a criminal conviction expunged from your record in Virginia. Under current Virginia law, if you're convicted of a crime, that includes a misdemeanor like reckless driving, you cannot have it expunged. The only way to remove it from your record would be to request a pardon from the governor. Requesting a pardon from the governor is unlikely to e successful.

What if it's been a long time since my conviction?

It doesn't matter how much time has passed since your reckless driving conviction. If you were convicted, you cannot have the conviction expunged. 

Consult a Virginia reckless driving attorney

The fact that you can't have a reckless driving conviction removed from your record means you need to consult a Virginia reckless driving attorney as soon as possible. Don't wait because it might be too late. You may end up coming to the conclusion that you don't need an attorney, but a free consultation could save you from a permanent criminal conviction.
