Hello, we want to apply for Naturalisation the person applying has 3 points in the license in 2018 he has also got the removal date is August 2022. Can we still apply??

Hi, Welcome to JA

I will read your question and respond

Was it just the 3 points or points and fine?

It is important to disclose all criminal offences, regardless of type and severity. The guidance provided for the form used to apply for naturalisation (form AN), specifically states:

“You must give details of all criminal convictions both within and outside the UK.

These include road traffic offences. Fixed penalty notices (such as speeding or parking tickets) must be disclosed, although will not normally be taken into account unless:

  • you have failed to pay and there were criminal proceedings as a result
  • you received 3 or more fixed penalty notices at any level
  • in the past 3 years, you received 2 or more fixed penalty notices, at least one

of which was at the upper levels (fine of £200 or more)”.

In relation to drink driving specifically, the guidance clarifies that drink driving offences must be declared on the British Citizenship application, and that a driving conviction may not be disregarded despite any penalty points being removed from your driving licence”.
