I was fined £250 and disqualified from driving for 18 months for driving without a valid driving licence and insurance and was admonished for taking and driving a motor vehicle without the owners consent in 1985. In 1995 I was cautioned and charged by the benefits agency for knowingly failing to notify of a change in circumstances. I paid back the overpayment before I went to court where I was fined £120. None of these show up on my advanced disclosure which I have had done twice in the last 10 years. Why don't they show up and would I be able to travel to the USA on ESTA.
I thought that the one from the benefits agency was moral turpitude as it is more or less benefit fraud.
