Good Morning

This is a traffic matter and it will appear on your traffic record not your criminal record. They are separate records but this is serious.

They are treated the same way because they are serious and they can result in a jail term.

Here is some information for you.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon
