How to check your Criminal Record

A criminal record is a person's criminal history. The information included in a criminal differs between countries. In some countries it is limited to convictions but in some, it may include traffic offences like speeding and driving under the influence. Some countries go to an extent of including pending chargers, dismissed chargers and charges which the individual has been acquitted.

Why check your criminal records?

Most of the time potential employers, lenders and others may request from a police clearance certificate (document issued by the SAPS Criminal Record and Crime Scene Management stating whether any criminal offence has been recorded against the person) to access your trustworthiness
