unspent criminal conviction

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. I have an unspent conviction of common assault dated back to Dec 04. I have eighteen months remaining before it is spent. Will this bar me from joining the TA
  2. A con with a blood pressure problem?

    Maybe best actually contacting the TA themselves.
  3. I have an unspent conviction for drink driving and been told that I won't be able to do anything to do with driving until it's spent.

    Apparently, in REME that leaves me with chef, storeman or armourer - luckily I chose armourer before trying to join!

    Seems a bit weird to me though, maybe they think that I'm still on a driving ban? I should clarify next week.
  4. That is good, hope mine can be overlooked.
  5. I hope it isn't. We don't need anymore punchy slappers like you.
  6. I got told I was ok because it was a motoring offence.

    It'll be a completely different story with GBH/ABH/Common assault - that's what I was told anyway.

    You might be better off waiting til it's spent, or go ahead and get rejected for service.
