Do cautions show on a standard DBS check if over 6 years

This answer was rated:

Do cautions show on a standard DBS check if over 6 years old? I have two cautions for shoplifting both over 6 years old (I think, one may be just under 6 years) and given I feel unduly; where I was under a lot of stress and only accepted to get out of the interview room. No intention to leave without paying. Anyway, I need to know if both or one or neither will show up.
Many thanks
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
A caution will not show after 12 months. So no, they won't show on a standard check.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?

I thought cautions didn't show after 6 years.It is absolutely crucial the information provided is 100% correct and with no room for any doubt.Do cautions show on enhanced DBS checks after 6 years if there are 2 cautions?
Hello, the information you have been provided with is incorrect. An adult caution will remain on a standard check for 6 years, after which it will be filtered and removed. It MAY still appear on an enhanced check after 6 years but only if the police deem that it is relevant information for the application for which you are having a DBS done. So let’s say you are going into the financial industry and need an enhanced DBS check, they may disclose that you have had a caution for shoplifting because that shows dishonesty which may be relevant to the specific application you need a DBS check for. I hope this clarifies things for you, is there anything else I can help with?

Will both cautions be filtered after 6 years on a standard check and not show?
It does not matter how many cautions you have, they will get filtered after 6 years on a standard check. If you had more than one conviction then these will not get filtered Does this clarify things for you?
Hello, we just need to quickly clarify an issue with the rating you left. You initially rated the original expert which credited them for their response. As I have pointed out that response is incorrect. Could you please confirm if you still want that person to be credited for their answer or if you agree for the site to transfer the credit to the expert who provided the correct response? Many thanks

I do not want the original 'expert' to be credited as even I knew this information was incorrect. . Please ensure the credit goes to the expert who provided the correct advise. Thank you for clarifying the position do succinctly and clearly.
Thanks for your clarification. All the best
