Thank that clears up quite a bit, I don't plan to go into a job that requires an advance eDBS check such as teaching.
From what went down it was defiantly my fault i was being careless, The machine was spitting my coins out so decided not to get a ticket (stupid reason i know), not thinking about the ticket office as i always use the machines.
I got caught at a change over station. The ticket officer took my details and in the documents there is a written statement, It explains that I had money in change and that i explained that the machines where rejecting my change, its turns out one of them was faulty. However i still think that its best just to plead guilty as there was a open ticket office.
I'm happy to pay a fine to just get this over with, and write a plea of guilt letter apologizing.
Because its a bye law its defiantly wont be a permanent record?, this is the main thing i am concerned with. Just to clarify on the first page is says "Having contravened Bye Law No.18(1)"
