Ok - in that case a driving conviction without any other aggravating factors (such as no licence) is NOT an offence of moral turpitude. You can apply for an ESTA

In any event there is NO sharing of conviction information between the UK and USA. So unless you tell them - they wont know.

Dont tell them and dont declare it - they wont find out.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
