Section 5 of the form asks whether you have been convicted of any criminal offence in the UK or abroad, including spent convictions.

You also need to say if you are on trial or awaiting prosecution.

Question 5.3 gives you the opportunity to explain why you can be considered of good character despite having convictions, this includes community work, volunteering, etc.

Please note that you are only asked to declare criminal convictions and not civil penalties, CCJs, insolvency, etc.
