does anyone know how i can look up anywhere to see if someone has had a drink drive ban through the courts
im in scotland
as i know scottish law differs from english
if you tell the court the person is going to work for you driving they will tell you but it will cost money
yeah but you cant just go to the courts and get this info, it would be a breach of confidentiality. you would have to go through Disclosure Scotland to get this info. and even then they wouldnt hand out this info to just anyone
no m8 if its for a job you have the wright it was done to me thats why i know
in scotland??? if the courts were handing out that type of info on me, they would be hearing from my lawyer very quickly. the courts have no right to do that. that is why disclosure scotland was put in place, to deal with employer criminal record checks.
I think you will find that any conviction is a case of public record and anyone can look through court transcripts and sentences. Unless the convicted was a young person.
most likely you will get banned. you shouldnt drive when you had a drink or drinks
Some employers demand that the applicant themselves apply via the FOI (Freedom of Information Act) for a copy of criminal convictions held on record, this is a right of anyone and only costs around £10 (admin fee)
??? A public body cannot disclose person identifiable information in an FOI request, it's the whole point of the act!! Now if the person was to put in a Data Protection Subject Access Request, that would be a different thing altogether!
I think you might find that the "whole point" of the FOI is not to protect personal info, that would be the DPA.
I didn't say the whole point of the FOI act is to protect personal data, I said the whole point is to allow public bodies to release non-person identifiable information. Did you read my post??
