Only unspent convictions appear on basic crb checks so your caution will not show up.

How will I know whether is it is spent or unspent??? The incident happened about 11 years ago and I now need a basic crb check and it is making me feel ill Please help!!!!!!!!

Even a recent caution would not appear on a basic crb. A conviction is normally spent after 6 years so either way you have no cause for concern!
