Is it possible to join RMP with a criminal record?

#1
Hi, I'm 25 and have recently been looking into joining the forces. Am interested in RMP but have a prior conviction for drink driving. Will this automatically rule out RMP as a trade?

You will need to be 'non stick' posting that in here.

MoD Recruitment Help

ROOA 74

The old bill require offences of Drink Driving to be at least ten years old, before they will consider an application.

As I understand it, RMP recruitment is over subscribed. Best person to speak to would be your local recruiter.

I joined with a tape of Des O'Connor's greatest hits in my bag-there's a Criminal Record if ever I heard one!

Don't worry, they will soon provide you with one if you don't arrive equipped!

Oh push off, I know it's a cheap shot but it's is Tuesday and they are merely monkeys ATEOTD.

Try applying for the RLC in the Dvr trade discipline if you get knocked back by the RMP.

Keep us posted with your progress.

Alternatively you could join as something else anf then transfer into RMP later on. Maybe someone more knowledgeable could enlighten us, but I would have thought joining as AGC (SPS) would have made a transfer a bit more straightforward later on, what with it being in the same Corps and all.

Valid point made by Skinty. It is a well known fact that we within the SPS will take absolutely anyone (no requirement to pass mandatory fitness tests or to have a good command of english (written or indeed spoken)).

In fact I hear that we have recently dispatched our Recruiting Team to the outskirts of Calais.

It may still prevent him from joining RMP. In fact, I might risk a fiver on that. There's no way round having to declare spent and non-spent convictions. I doubt that an alcohol related driving ban would be overlooked even if spent. RMP have enough applicants waiting to join up as it is, so they have the luxury of pick and choose. I doubt the RLC driver trade would have him either, but I stand to be corrected. Applicants transferring from SPS are considered in exactly the same way as potential transferees from other badges. There's no halfway measures as RMP is a 'branch' within a 'branch' as opposed to an alternative trade group wthin the same Corps. Any SPS 'lady-boys' wishing to don God's red beret must prove their worth alongside proper soldiers who transfer over (and there are many). They don't get a 'by' just because they can type.

Get her! I will not bite....I will not bite.... F@ck it, I've bitten! 'Proper Soldiers?' climb down off your high horse my friend. Even God would break out in a bad case of hives if he had to don a Red Beret. I wouldn't argue about a Maroon Beret, but a Red Beret.........come on now.

I am surprised that the Red Beret hasn't been changed for a White coloured one though. Take for example the daily visit to Dunkin Donuts. What an annoyance it must be when the fine castor suger donut coating is transferred across from grubby, chubby fingers to the cloth of the beret. Has this significant issue never been raised before?

Bite ends..

Biscuits, calm yourself winkle. As anyone that knows me will tell you. I am indeed big (but not in the fat cuddly sense I hasten to add) and certainly no Jessie.

You up for another SPS ARRSE thrashing then m8?


Edited for mongness.

I agree that the red beret looks like a piece of menstrual waste and even worse when combined with a stable belt.

But to quote someone whose opinion is valued on here

“Go ahead,” I said, “Call the RMPs right now. Have them come down and flex cuff me and put me on an airplane out of here.” I waited for the RMP’s to arrive and arrest me.

At least they would be professionals.

Western. A valid quote.

I shall now endeavor to make up with Biscuits. On reflection there was no need for me to mention his chubby fingers. It was very insensitive of me.

Why would you want to pretend to be a policeman, if you want to make a difference become a proper copper? I was married to a monkey, everyone (generalising here) hated the job unless they were defending the Corps against the multitude of adverse comments received, then they suddenly had a sense of pride for being RMP. AGC paper pushers with a different colour beret. If you want to route sign exercises for the rest of your life, stag on and only associate with RMP (no one else likes them and they don't do it in case they have to knick you) then RMP is the job for you. Also helps if you don't mind stabbing your mates in the back either. Shooting deserters is no longer considered good sport even for the RMP. In with a far better chance if you are also narcissistic and have delusions of self importance.
