DBS checks drink driving
profile image
Hi all , I was recently lucky enough to finally be offered a job with easyJet as an apprentice in the new year. It’s something I’ve been dreaming of for ages but stupidly after getting the job I have gone out and the day after been stopped by the police and found to be over the limit . I now have to go court and plead guilty to drink driving , is this going to ruin my chance of starting in the new year ? I’ve never had any other criminal convictions or cautions and I’m really scared I’ve blown my chance . So if anyone knows could they help me out as I’m sat here worrying now and I’d rather just know than wait for when they do the background checks .

A conviction for drink driving shouldn't prevent you obtaining an airside pass.
I know of 4 people in two different airlines with them.

The only difficulty is whether Easyjet has a policy against this, perhaps if you would be expected to drive a hire car.

Maybe someone from Easyjet could let you know.

I have recently applied for Ryanair and been to the open day and been invited to a training course which starts in 2 weeks, the issue is last year end of October I stupidly caught a charge for dangerous driving which I had to plead guilty to in court and I had possession of a small amount of cannabis which was personal. This is going to come up in my DBS as I’ve been told by my probation officer. Is it going to affect me getting a job because I don’t want to go to the training course and then having to return back because I’m not accepted because of those charges. If anyone can help me with this?
Also should I ring Ryanair and tell them in advance or should I just go to the training course and let them see it on my DBS?
