Default Naturalisation form questions

Dear all

I have used this forum many times throughout the years and always found it so helpful. I am now coming to end of my journey and will be applying for naturalisation. I have two questions which I was hoping you could help clarify.


1.) There is a question regarding driving penalty’s in the UK or any other country. I have a clean driving record in the UK for the last 6 years and have never lost my license from speeding or been convicted of drink driving in any country. My question is around any penalty notices issued in my home country many years ago for minor speeding, parking infringements etc. Is the intention that these are disclosed? I wouldn’t even recall the details it was so long ago.

2.) the online forms are asking me to provide education details for the English language requirement even though I am a citizen of a majority English speaking country. As an Australian citizen / passport holder do I need to provide my degree with NARIC certification or will my Australian passport suffice for the English language requirement?

Many thanks for your help.

As far as #1 goes, I would wait for a moderator to advise you definitively: My gut feeling would be to honest and answer that they were minor infractions before you arrived in the UK.

Answer NO to #2. Eventually later in the application the Home Office will see that you are
from a predominantly English speaking country (Aussie, I looked it up last week because someone asked the same thing.) Your Australian passport is proof. Good Luck-

Thank you for the responses that it is helpful and as I thought for question 2.

Hopefully a moderator can confirm on question 1 as this is the only part I am stuck on now.
