letter explaining actions, regarding criminal convictions

Hi Hopefully this doesn't sound like to much of a stupid question.
I am up to the interview stage in my application. I have a criminal conviction for a driving offence which the afco has put a waiver on, he has told me to write a letter explaining my actions and just need to know what should I mention other than events? and what way should I format the letter i.e. formal???
any help would be much appreciated as I want to get this right as the chance at this career is very important to me.

Hi Andy!

Welcome to Rum Ration!

Yes to a formal letter. Type it.

Give the details of the conviction - date of the offence - background to what happened - what the consequences were - points etc.

I am assuming that you regret what you did. Express that regret.

This will never ever happen again, will it? Say so.

Just a few off the cuff ideas to start you off.

Cheers, appreciate the quick reply means I can get this typed up asap. Don't suppose ya know the likleyhood of my application being accepted by the powers that be for the likes of a driving offence? my test scores where good and my 1.5 miles was 2 mins under the maximum time allowed. I was also in the TA a couple of years ago would this help outweigh my convictions when being considered? cheers again!

You're welcome.

I can't say about the likelihood of it being accepted but it sounds like your CA is willing to put in a Waiver Application for you, so that's a good start.

On the assumption that you will be interviewed shortly, you might like to check this thread out, especially the essential sixth post, by Ninja Stoker:
