    Default Speeding tickets and criminal history

    Have to declare any criminal history to aphrah for my midwifery registration renewal.....

    are speeding tickets where they just send you a letter and you pay the fine (no court, kept my licence everyone was happy apart from my bank balance) a criminal offence?

    I'm due to renew my nursing registration, I thought it was declarable to AHPRA.

    Do they ask on the renewal form?

    Speeding tickets aren't considered criminal history. They certainly don't appear on your record when you obtain a police check.

    As long as you pay the fine on time and have no court date and aren't charged with a driving offense it does not show up on a police check and you don't have to declare it

    You only end up with a criminal record if you refuse to pay it and end up going to jail instead. It has to be unpaid for a hell of a long time though. I'm a nurse and have had a parking fine in a state government car and no issue with my employer or ahpra
