Most Court convictions for an adult that result in a fine will be considered spent after 5 years. A disqualification will become spent after the period of the disqualification (when you are allowed to drive again after being banned, for example).
If you want to see what is held on record then you can request a Police Subject Access Request (contact your local police for assistance) and also a basic criminal record check through www.disclosurescotland.co.uk (a few different to English Law but still extremely useful).
It is very important that you exercise full disclosure in your application. You can be refused for not disclosing a relevant fact even if that fact would not have resulted in refusal of your application. There is not a requirement to disclose spent convictions.
