Chapter 5 - Before you Start your Application

♪ (music playing) ♪

Before you start your record suspension application, here are some important things to keep in mind.

Make sure you answer all questions truthfully and completely.

Hiding information or making false or deceptive statements will result in your application being denied, or your record suspension being revoked or ceasing to have effect later on.

Applications must include only original documents.

Documents should have original signatures and original office seals or stamps from the courts and police that issued them to you.

If you do not include original documents, your application will be returned to you.

Forms that have been tampered with will also be returned to you.

The only documents that do not need to be original are identification and immigration documents.

For these, you should only send photocopies with your application.

Fill in all required information on both sides of all forms.

Note that Local Police Record Checks are only valid for six months from the date they are issued to you.

Make photocopies of all completed forms and official documents for your own files, in case you need to refer to them later.
