Proof of clean driving license
Although officers issue tickets and points on your driving license, the records are kept by the DVLA. Please contact the DVLA to get a copy of what is held on your licence (opens in a new window).
Business CCTV responsibility
If your business uses CCTV to monitor public areas, you must ensure you comply with data protection legislation. The Information Commissioner has a code of practice which advises how to use CCTV in order to comply with legislation (opens in a new window).
Rehabilitation of offenders
In some cases, the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (opens in a new window) gives you the right not to declare spent convictions on job applications.
Many application forms ask you to declare all convictions but unless employers refer to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, Exceptions Order 1975 or are listed within it, you may have the right to withhold information about your spent convictions.
Please be aware that spent convictions are kept on police computers in accordance with the rules for criminal convictions. Even if they have been removed from police computers, they may still be held by the courts.
