Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, you are correct that the conviction you received has now become spent because any custodial sentence of between 6 months and 2.5 years becomes spent after 4 years from the date of conviction. However, it also depends on what questions you are being asked on the application form. If they specifically ask you to declare spent convictions as well then you would have to declare this even if it is now spent. If on the other hand they only want to know if you have any unspent convictions or generally ask if you have a criminal record then you can answer in the negative because you have neither of those any longer. So you need to read the questions on the form when applying and tailor your answer based on those - the questions could vary from one insurance provider to the next
