Desert Storm Based on the current rules you should be ok as you don't have more than 1 FPN in the last 12mths. The only issue is if the caseworker decides there is a pattern of offending which is rarely seen on this forum.....all the best.

Can one really be ordered to attend a rehabilitation course (awareness) without going to court?

Awareness Course

Only for Speeding of what I know, again its at the discretion of Police Officer and whether that Police force has this option as not all of them offer it. Also it depends if you were not heavily speeding its only for minor offence above the legal limit.

Desert Storm Once you meet all the other requirements you should be fine. Your non-custodial sentence has expired (3yrs) and you have no FPNs in the last 12mths. IMO the caseworker has to be very very unreasonable to reject you application based on what you quote here.Drive carefully, relax and hope for the best. Keep the forum posted.

Desert Storm In December I told you that unless you encounter a real unreasonable case worker you should be fine. Glad you crossed the line in the end. Enjoy!
