Thanks for responding to me, Like I said, My ESTA was rejected it came back "Travel Not Authorized" So I can't just go on holiday and enjoy it unfortunately. To clarify, when I got my points it was when so called friends of mine had stolen a car and crashed it in to mine, having panicked and fled the scene at the time I ended up in court with them. It was 31 years ago and I have attempted to find out if I have a criminal record from that but the ACRO comes back with "No Trace" and the Court I went to couldn't help me. I have previously just said no to any convictions and the 2 previous ESTA's went through OK, the ESTA application form is a lot more involved this year and it comes back as "travel Not Authorized". I have phoned the passport office and they said to send my passport to them with a covering letter so they could check it isn't faulty (I presume they meant the bio chip) but they also said they wouldn't be able to tell me any details If there was anything on there stopping my travel. However I have already booked an interview with the American Embassy for a VISA so now cannot send my passport in as I need to take it with me in a few weeks. I'll phone the passport office again and see If I get a different response from someone else. I also went to Spain last week and back on Tuesday this week and didn't get stopped or questioned this time when I came back I went through the Bio-metric gate successfully.
