Check if you need to tell someone about your conviction or caution
Use this tool to check whether:
- a conviction or caution you got in England or Wales is ‘spent’ (not on your basic criminal record)
- you need to tell a potential employer, university or college about it
You can also read more about what a spent conviction or caution is.
Check your conviction or caution
Before you check
For each conviction or caution you’ve had, you’ll need:
- the type of conviction or caution you got
- the date you got it
- the date any conditions ended, or how long your sentence was
If you give approximate dates, the result you get will be approximate.
You will not need to give personal details such as your name. The information you give will not be saved and cannot identify you.
