spent criminal conviction rehabilation of offender act

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. can you be turned down for the TA as an infantry soldier if you have SPENT criminal convictions?
    On the application form you can tick No to never having had a conviction if it is spent.
  2. For certain employers, such as the MOD and Guber'ment convictions are never truly spent and they will always be able to see them.

    That doesn't however mean that will say no to you.

    Your best (from experience) is to be honest about it when asked (and they WILL ask you). If you are thinking about joining a unit, go and have a chat with the recruiting team and tell them about your situation.

    Hope that helps,
