You can fail them for ridiculously trivial things, so if you ever plan on applying to another govt office, make sure you don't have some small thing in your past that could bite you
What do you mean by "trivial?" The worst thing I can think of is a speeding violation. No criminal/subversive history, otherwise.
Not that trivial. But I think a DUI or even something less egregious would get you dinged
Do those of you who have been through the process believe this is true? While (for example) drinking law violations might show a lack of judgement, wouldn't years of good behavior undermine the idea that one's temperament is problematic? I would think they would be more concerned with background imperfections involving moral turpitude.
