Thank you for your response. I have a further question if that is ok? When the conviction shows on my record will it show how much over the limit I was. I will have to tell my new employer as they are asking me to fill in a form with this question:
Have you ever been convicted of any criminal offence(s) which is not yet “spent” under the Act or are you facing any criminal prosecution?
Therefore even if it isn't going to show up yet on the disclosure I am facing prosecution so I have to be honest but I don't know how much to say. I am very scared that they will not wish for me to continue my employment
