Finger Printing for British Passport Application

Post by rolex1234 » Thu Oct 03, 2013 6:58 am

Could anyone advice if they do finger print, when they went to Passport office after Naturalization. I have recently applied for Naturalization and a friend informs me that I will do finger print when I go for interview for British Passport Application. Is this true?

No fingerprint required - just your signature on an electronic device that is compared with the one on your application.

Points on Licence

Post by rolex1234 » Thu Oct 03, 2013 2:26 pm

Hi, I recently applied for Naturalisation, but forgot to declare motor vehicle offence received on 2/06/2008. The reason for not declaring it was that, it happened 5 years ago, and I have since paid the £70 fine, I was ordered to pay by the court in 2008. I was reading online, about how they categorize good character, I thought Criminal offences were only supposed to be declared if someone was sentenced and besides I only received 3 penalty points for the offence, so its a very minor offence. Can anyone advice if the 3 year rule for non custodial offences is true, because, the offence was 5 years ago, and I pray they don't use this against me, as the application fee is expensive.
Please your kind advice is needed.
Thank you

Just an update 11.10.13. Application has been successful, so I am awaiting invitation letter. Thanks for all your advice.

When did you apply for Naturalization? If this is your only offence, let it go. I am sure you will be fine. I presume you will have a clean driving licence.

Just for the sake of peace call up the dvla on the 03 number and give yur driver details and they should tell you over the phone. Also be extremely cautious not to rack up any further offences.

These chaps are upgrading the cameras everywhere to catch more motorists as per news reports.

Good Luck
cheers

You were sentenced if you pleaded guilty at Court, you have a conviction which should have been declared. You should consider writing a letter to UKBA Liverpool and declaring the conviction before your application is considered.
