Did you pay the fixed penalty notice before the matter went to court?
Do you have any other convictions or fixed penalty notices?
Thank you for your question and patience, I’m Tom and I’ll try to help you.
Please refer to section 3.2 on page 15 of the application form:
You will see that the form confirms “Fixed Penalty Notices (such as speeding or parking tickets) do not form part of a person’s criminal record” provided that there were no criminal proceedings (ie. that the matter did not proceed to court).
Therefore, it would not be a criminal conviction for the purpose of the form and you can state that you do not have any convictions provided that you do not have any other offences.
You will be fine if this is the only issue.
My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up issues specifically relating to your question.
