How long does a caution stay on your record in the UK?

If you acknowledge to committing an offense, the police can issue you a warning. A warning is not the same as a conviction. A caution is a warning that remains on your record for six years if you are an adult, or two years if you are under the age of 18. You cannot be convicted of another crime while still under a caution.

A conviction is when the court finds you guilty of an offense and sentences you to punishment. If you admit to committing an offense but are not found guilty by a judge or jury, you have not been convicted. The fact that you may have admitted guilt before a judge or magistrate allows them to treat you like any other offender seeking help through the court system. Judges are able to order counseling programs, place you on probation, or even dismiss the charges against you if you show good behavior. However, if you do not admit guilt, then this option is not available to them.

When your caution expires you will need to remember it when applying for jobs, registering with police departments, etc. Otherwise, you could be denied these opportunities based on this criminal record. However, you can remove yourself from the alert by contacting the relevant law enforcement agency and paying the required fee. This would result in the expiration of the caution and no further action needed from your part.

If the applicant was under the age of 18 at the time of the offence, a conviction will be filtered 17 years after the date of the conviction, and a caution will be filtered 10 years after the date of the caution.

Offenses that result in a fine only, such as driving with a suspended license, are not counted against an offender when calculating whether they meet the standard for a criminal record. However, once an offender meets the standard, their record will remain on the DBS for 11 years.

For example, a driver who has their license revoked twice within a five-year period can apply to have the remaining conviction removed. When applying for a license renewal, the motor vehicle authority can also consider applications for convictions that are more than 10 years old.

Unless there are special circumstances assessed by an officer of at least the level of inspector, a person cannot be granted a police caution if one has been issued in the preceding two years. Before issuing a police caution, the victim's point of view should be determined. If possible, the victim should be given the opportunity to provide information that might help prevent further incidents from occurring.

Police officers must issue a caution within 48 hours of making an arrest. If no jail cell is available, then a caution can be issued at the station house. However, if the offender is being held on bail or some other form of release, then a judge can order that he or she not be jailed pending trial. In this case, it is acceptable for the police to hold the suspect out as having been cautioned.

The standard warning for criminal negligence is "to act with wanton disregard for the safety of others". It is up to the discretion of the officer writing the ticket to increase the penalty if they feel it is necessary.
