What will be released in my Western Australia Police Clearance Certificate?

A Police Clearance Certificate discloses records of any criminal and traffic convictions that you might have across all  Australian states and territories. Notably, it also includes details of pending charges, which are any unresolved charges before Australian courts.

In Western Australia, your criminal record will provide a basic description of any offence that you have been convicted for, along with the date of the conviction and the sentence or penalty you received.

Can I use National Police History Checks issued by InterCheck for Licence Applications for the Department of Commerce WA?

Yes, absolutely. National Police History Checks issued by InterCheck are accepted by the Department. If you require consumer protection licences and registrations in Western Australia in the following industries:

  • Property industries
  • Motor vehicle industries
  • Employment agents
  • Debt collectors
  • Mutual recognition

Licence applications must generally be accompanied by an Australian police clearance for all individuals associated with the application. Police Clearances must be issued in the individual’s full legal name. For more information on how to apply for those licenses, please head to the WA Department of Commerce.

How long do offences stay on my record?

Offences will remain on your record unless they are “spent”. However, even if you have a conviction or convictions that are spent, these and any other convictions will show up when your record is being considered by the police or a criminal court.

A criminal court may take all offences, including those that are spent, into account when dealing with you in court. If you want to know more about the spent conviction scheme, you can read more on the Western Australia Police website.
