For a drink drive conviction:

1. You must declare the offence on your Security Clearance Questionnaire (MoD Form 1109), spent or unspent.

2. You need to have your driving licence back & be able to produce it.

3. You need to produce evidence that all fines are paid & any other penalty spent. (For example 6 month suspended prison sentence for DD = 7 years rehabilitation from date of conviction before considered spent). You should request a print out from the convicting court clerk.

4. To be considered fully spent, the offence must not have included any other unspent civil offence or serious motoring offence. (Serious motoring offences = drink drive, no licence, no insurance, unpaid fines, dangerous driving, loss of life, critical injury etc.,)

5. If less than 5 years have elapsed since date of conviction & fine, a criminal conviction waiver may be requested as advised by your AFCO, but be aware a waiver is by no means assured.

6. If you do not declare the offence, it will be revealed on the Police National Computer (PNC) check undertaken by the Defence Vetting Agency. Failure to disclose will be a bar to entry.

Other than that, you will be absolutely fine, good luck with your application.

I got banned for drink driving for 16 months, ban was up this August so I've been back driving now about 3 and half months, you will be fine aslong as the fines are paid and the ban is up.

You still need a criminal conviction waiver & this is assuming you have no other serious motoring offences. (No licence, no tax, no insurance etc). Again, 3rd post refers.

If you haven't declared it already on your Security Clearance form (MoD Form 1109), then it's best that you do advise your AFCO because it will come up on the checks when it's submitted.

First thing is to notify your AFCO otherwise it will come-up on the security Check as not having being declared.

Second thing is that you cannot join with a pending court case or unspent criminal conviction.

With regard criminal convictions & eligibility to join, my earlier post on this thread states the rules.

A waiver is by no means assured nor given, however the reference book, BR 3 Naval Personnel Management, Chapter 6 article 0627, indicates a waiver may be requested from the Regional Commander, at the discretion of the Careers Adviser after the ban has expired & the fine is paid. Until the ban expires & the fine has been paid, there's little point undergoing a PRMC as it's only valid for 12 months.
