Will police cautions stand in the way?
Will epilepsy affect my shotgun certificate renewal?
I haven’t had an epileptic fit (touch wood) for more than five years thanks to the medication I take.
A: The best thing in these shotgun licence renewal cases, as with convictions, is to write ‘none since the last application’ in the appropriate box.
If you got a shotgun certificate five years ago you shouldn’t have a problem now. If you’re worried, talk to your GP because the police may well write to him to seek relevant medical information and it’s best if he’s fore-warned. You should tell him you will require a copy of any correspondence he has had with the police.
