In answer to your question, is that no one here can give you a straight answer.

Everyone has different criminal backgrounds and circumstances behind them. Someone who has 'similar' convictions may have sailed through vetting, which in turn gives you a false sense of security thinking "oh I'll be fine" and when it comes to it they say no so you end up thoroughly disappointed.

The best advice is to declare everything, give yourself the best chance by being completely honest. Then just let the vetting team make their decision. The worst they will do is say no, and you won't know until you try! :)

I agree - there are countless threads on here regarding this but everything you need to know is summarised in the two posts above! Good luck.

It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity
