Are you wanting to know if you have to disclose here.

You will have to disclose any arrests on the renewal and they will want a page about what you were arrested for.If you have a lawyer the lawyer can help with drafting it.You just be honest here knowing they can pick this up on a background check anyway.If it doesn't affect your business say a DUI/DWI much less likely a problem than something involving moral turpitude say theft, fraud, etc.

They likely will schedule an interview to discuss it with you again this is more likely it is a felony rather than speeding ticket even first time DUI/DWI.

It is case by case bu t this is pretty standard operating procedure.

I appreciate the chance to respond, let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.
