Hi Sue, as it has been more than 11yrs your convictions are now deemed protected (filtered) and as such they will no longer show on either a standard or enhanced DBS check and do not have to be disclosed if completing these level of checks.

hope this helps

Hi, I had 3 convictions in 2005, all on the same day drunk and in charge of motor-vehicle, assault on police officer, and no valid insurance certificate, got a fine and points on driving license which the points  have now all been removed. I recently had a standard dbs in December 2020 and no convictions were shown which I was really pleased,  does this mean they have been removed for good? However I now want to apply for a different job which requires a higher DBS check which is the enhanced, will it show my convictions again? Thank you so much
