I believe it is possible for a person to request and check if they have any unspent convictions. This is similar to the case where jobs mandate a person to be Security Cleared. The options are
1. Basic security certificate (thats shows unspent convictions) which a person can apply to check their own details provided they have lived in the UK for the last 12months.
2. Enhanced certificate showing spent and unspent convictions but only possible if a company/organization requests it. You cannot request this
3. The top most level for which I forgot the name but its not relevant.
For all those who are not sure if they have an unspent conviction, just like in my case (got Speeding Fine from Court as was on International DL hence no fixed penality but direct court letter), its best to check in this manner so you know where you stand. Those who also got points on their license but not sure if its a conviction can check this
Hope this helps

BTW - If your fine was returned to you then this means the fine was revoked so I doubt you have anything to worry about. But in case you want to be sure, just go through the process and your mind will be at ease once you get the result.
All the best
Note that the CRB check will show ANY unspent convictions on your record. UKBA have clearly stated you have declare any unpsent convictions. So whether its traffic violation or robbery, if the CRB check says you dont have unspent convictions, then you really dont have unspent convictions.
It cannot be a case where CRB says there are no unspent convictions but UKBA say there are - the source for this information for both parties is the same so the CRB check will suffice to confirm any conviction.
And no, you dont have to declare anything to CRB. They are the ones who will get that info from you
