You can order SAR from local police station, it won't show anything.

I wonder, should we attach it to application form just in case. So that UKBA won't be able to accuse us of having criminal record?

I hope Sushdmehta would find time in busy schedule and, hopefully, reply to this topic.

Pqek, did you mention this fine on ILR application form? Did you tick the box that you have criminal conviction? Did you send your SAR report together with ILR application? Thank you.
I have exactly the same situation, going to apply for ILR soon, would be grateful for your advice. Thanks a lot!

Ssidd, yes, exactly like that. Then I decided to apply for US tourist visa and I ordered ACRO police certificate. It shows NO TRACE and in cover letter it tells me that I don't have ANY convictions. http://www.acro.police.uk/police_certificates.aspx I even reported them that I have criminal convicti...

Thank you for your reply. Can I ask you, are you solicitor and/or did you have similar case? The reason I asked Sushdmehta is because I think he is solicitor. And I know many people have very good intentions but I would prefer to see opinion of professional based on the law and practice. If you are ...

Yes, I agree with you. You have nothing to worry about. I fall into Scenario 2 a). Mine is not recorded on PNC. And also Sushdmehta said that it looks like FPN in any case. There is also definition of recordable criminal convictions and most driving offence do not fall under this category (you can c...

Question to Sushdmehta, new criminality threshold (traffic)

Thank you for updating Criminality Threshold sticky. If you remember, I wrote that Disclosure Scotland showed my 200 pounds fine and cd10 traffic offence. Now, I had some news. I requested other check from Association of Police Officers ( http://www.acro.police.uk/police_certificates.aspx ) which US...

Yes I know it but why they made it so confusing? Well, I think they deliberately make it so confusing so that in case of some sort of crisis, if they don't want immigrants, or some particular immigrant or group of immigrants, they can interpret these rules as they want. There were a lot of fine exa...

And just to clarify. By new rules they ask for all spent and unspent convictions. I never had conviction, so I don't have to declare my small fine. But because they wrote the form so confusing, I will better declare it just in case. The fact that they ask now for even spent conviction does not make ...

Well, I asked the same question myself. I have small fine and it does not show on PNC. I got letter from Police Officers Association which officially states that I do not have any criminal convictions. But the form is designed in a confusing way (I think deliberately). They ask for spent and unspent...

Even if you have something on PNC, it should not automatically mean that you can't apply in my opinion. I don't think you committed any recordable offence. I myself also did not commit recordable offence but for some idiotic reason it shows on Disclosure Scotland. Check google for definition of reco...

Well, it seems clear to me too. The question is what sort of convictions will delay application by 24 months. I don't think CRB can be used as certain guidance here because sometimes it shows non-recordable offences. I think Border Agency means only recordable offences (which potentially imprisonabl...

Thank you!!! Yes, I see what you mean. So, even if they treat it as conviction, in Good Character requirements there is written that they ignore one minor conviction. So when I first saw new rules I was worried that they will cancel it but it looks like they would not cancel Good Character rules bec...

Road Traffic Act Section 3, £200 fine. What is this written under / against? Criminal Record / Unspent conviction / fines / offences / or something else? Just because a fine for a motoring offence is recorded in a PNC check does not make it a "criminal record". I wonder then should I declare it on ...

Road Traffic Act is written in Offence field.

Offence: Road Traffic Act, Section 3

Under Convictions heading. Between Court and Disposal.

Road Traffic is written where Offence is. And all that written under "Convictions" heading. Like that. Not criminal convictions, just one word "Convictions". Then there is Date, Court, Offence and Disposal. Court: Stirling Sheriff Offence: Road Traffic Act Section 3 In Disposal it is written: CHG(S)...

Thanks so much for the reply. I know, I read forum a lot. But I worry that new rules which came today would make it a problem. They would not?
