  • First time poster here. Got my vetting last week and was wondering if someone could answer a few things. I took a speed awareness course a few years back (no points), do I declare that in the convictions? If so how would i go about finding the exact date etc? Thanks in advance for your help!

    I didn't as it's not a conviction so you'll be good.

    Quick question guys. I remember having a penalty to pay for not wearing a seatbelt about 9 years ago and had to pay a £60 fine and 3 points I think. Where would I get this information to get the right details? And also in the space asking for police station do I put down the station I surrendered my licence? So confusing lol

    The quickest option is to call DVA in Coleraine and they should be able to help. Just say it's for a job application but they'll probably not even ask.

    0300 200 7861

    Or you could make a Subject Access Request.

  • For the vetting, do i need to provide any details of passport etc there is a part with passport number etc but it looks like they are meant to fill that out not us??




  • I'd like to know this also. Is this the 'sponsors' bit recruit099?

  • Yes tomahawk it's the only bit where I see anything remotely to do with identification but says sponsors unless your photo is good enough haha!




  • That is for the PSNI to complete as they are your sponsors so leave it blank.




  • So Homer you don't send of any ID or put any details of ID down??

    Correct, they will do that. Anything that says sponsors is for them; pages 27-29 etc.

    fair enough just seemed very strange not having to put anything down in it at all haha!

  • They really should clarify that one. I think people have filled it in previously as they knew someone who had security clearance but it's for their vetting department.




  • Is it SC or CTC we are completing? As there is a section in the forms that state you don't need to fill it out if it is for CTC.

    If that's the sponsor section leave it out that's not for us to fill in

    It's the financial history section.




  • In the financial part it's all yes no questions anyway is it not

    Pretty much but you are only to complete it if it is for SC and not for CTC, so I'm unsure if it applies to us.




  • Are we not getting SC checked then getting CTC checked




  • recruit099 wrote: »

    Not sure. The information provided makes no direct reference to what we are actually filling the forms in for, other than the fact it is for vetting purposes.

    It does mention on the forms that they are used for both SC and CTC. The only sections that ask what type of security clearance is required (SC or CTC) are for the sponsors to complete.

    I imagine I'd be better off filling it in, as providing too much information should hopefully not be a problem, but I just wanted see if anyone else had filled that particular section.




  • Do they still run credit checks when vetting?

    I passed a few weeks ago but no search on credit report, not that I'm complaining.

  • I had mine checked Homer.

    And did it clearly show up under credit searches?

    Yes mate. You will know when you see it. Use experia credit if your not.




  • Yes mate. You will know when you see it. Use experia credit if your not.

    I'm on Clearscore, maybe it'll appear next month. Not that it matters just curious.




  • Not sure the likes of clearscore/noddle are as accurate or go into as much detail as experian.

    Ditch clear score mate its rubbish. You will see it on experia.




  • What can you actually fail vetting on?




  • Random question…and probably getting way ahead of myself but if there is an issue with vetting (being honest I have a juvenile caution) what's the procedure? Particularly if they deny you vetting and you appeal what happens? Do you get a chance to actually talk to someone?

    Just trying to be prepared in case…anyone that's actually had issues would be really helpful

    Thanks!




  • Pretty sure in my many years on this forum that i've read every page of the vetting thread and the recurring theme is that it's the failure to disclose rather than the actual offences that lead to people failing vetting.
