Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
Yes. It is a road traffic matter which is a criminal offence.
It is not a recordable offence though so it will not show on DBS checks but the DVLA will have a record.
It is not a criminal offence that says anything about a person's character though so is not usually a bar to advancement.
Can I clarify anything for you?
