Expert:  Ben Jones replied 2 years ago.
Sorry, my connection dropped earlier. This is not a criminal record as there was no conviction. So it would not be something which would come up on a Basic or Standard DBS check. However, it will likely remain against your name on the police database so if you are having an Enhanced check, there is a remote possibility that it may come up on there if the police believe that it is relevant to the application you are applying for. Let’s say you were applying to be a driver for children, they may believe that the fact you have previously been arrested for alleged drink driving is relevant and may include that on the check. However, it is only a potential issue if you are having an Enhanced DBS check and also if the police believe that this information is relevant to your application. In any event, if you are asked whether you have a criminal record or any spent/unspent convictions you can always answer no as it is none of these.
