Drink Driving

#3
Honestly don't have a clue mate. It'll be different for different situations. Go to the careers office and explain to them that you realise what you did was stupid and that you fcuked up and hope for the best.

Good, and i for one have no sympathy for you. And before anyone says "moment of stupidity but....". If you knew that you were joining the Army and as an Officer you should of taken it upon yourself to make sure you were bullet proof. You were not so suffer the consequences.

Well, you do now have a "criminal record" and so this has to be declared to the guys in the careers office as you now can't drive, best advice I can give is for you to put your name forward for the Alcohol awareness course they should have offered you at the court. A 3 day course that knocks of 25% of your ban, assuming you got banned for 2 years which is the usual maximum you should have your license back in just over a year.

That way you give the guys in the careers office a definite date of when you'll be driving again and make the point that between now and then you'll be under training and so don't have to drive anyway.

If the recruiters are honest they will know loads of people in the Forces who have a drink drive conviction so they may treat you leniently.

Im pretty sure this guy is quite an authoritive voice on this one.


The only sympathy drink driving gets from me, is when its consoling a friends family that has just been mowed down by a drink driver.

Guys, quite right, not looking for sympathy etc, was genuinely trying to work out how this affects my future plans; I was in the wrong no going back on that, but no use drifting on past deeds, I need to move on.

Does the Army website not have a chat feature which allows you to ask any questions you may have on application? Try them I say, I imagine they may be in the know on military policy in regard to recruiting officers lacking social responsibility.

Back in the day when I tried to join, I still had 1 month left of my D&D driving ban. As I had a conviction, I was told to come back a month later, when my ban had run out.
I went back a month later, and eventually signed on the dotted line, no problem.
I don't know if it's different for Officers, as IMO they should be held to higher standards than the rest of us mere mortals.
Hope this helps.

Take a risk and don't declare it, or wait for the offence to be spent.

What a sound bit of advice that is! :roll: Cock!!

Right from the start be honest. You will soon get found out if your not.

Logic, You are a prize cu[/b]nt.

Maybe he can't get to it geordie_g, on account of him losing his license?

I can imagine he'd be reluctant to walk into an Army Careers Officer and to be potentially told to his face "no...you silly little boy...you cocked it...et cetera".

thats a bit stupid isnt it? surely all soldiers ta and cadet officers should be honest at all times? i would imagine that the army has a way of finding out who the liars are and you encouraging him to lie makes you a liar youself, which i dont think the Army wants.

Not all of them.

However the very simply carried out criminal records check will come back with a big fat stamp on it for DD.

Your man will then have showed that he has all the honesty and integrity of a used car salesman and would quite rightly be asked to fcuk off.

Honesty is the best policy as far as criminal records go. I'd rather work with an honest idiot (Thats what Drink Drivers are) than a clever liar any day of the week.
