What comes up in a CRB check?

    I just got offered a part time job.

    They said I will start once they recieve my 2 references from my referees and my CRB check comes back clean.

    In my life I have done the following:

    - had a car accident and went to court as a result where I was charged with "driving without due care and attention" and got 3 points for it

    - i was drinking alcohol straight from the vodka bottle on the train with my friends and the police saw us, and asked for all our names and addresses (all my friends recieved a letter but i did not )


    My question is this, will these x2 come up on the CRB check? Because i think i may get turned down if they find out i comitted a crime by drinking on public transport

    I am also worried that perhaps they just sent my friends letters of warning, but i didnt recieve a letter therefore i probably am convicted and it shows on my record.

    Anyone have any ideas please let me know. Thanks

    I doubt a driving offence will show, I got sent on a course a year or so ago because I was caught drifting cops gave me a "due care" instead of a dangerous driving but that does not show on my enhanced CRB (I work with children so have to have every check going). As for the drinking one did the cops give you a caution, if so it may come up.

    What job have you applied for?

    I just got my basic CRB disclosure and it took about two weeks. I'd expect the full one to take a bit longer.

    I wouldn't worry about it taking a while, your local police probably just regard it as a low priority and make take a little while to get around to it.
