Red face Fixed penalty offences on driving licence

This is probably a silly question but do fixed penalty offenses on a driving licence require rehabilitation or do you just have to disclose via the police check. I have no issue with disclosure one is current speeding ie three points for OH and the other was over three points ten years ago for myself jumping a red light. Neither offense required attendance at court and the fixed penalty fine was paid immediately. Any advice much appreciated as cannot find much advice on this aspect as the focus appears to be on more serious crimes.

Has no effect, traffic offences are not criminal offences in Canada

Thank you for that thought it probably wasn't a problem but CIC website not really helpful on this kind of thing.

But DUI which is a traffic offense in many countries is a criminal offense in Canada making offender inadmissible and requiring criminal rehabilitation. Similarly with reckless driving, which depending from circumstances may in Canada be a criminal offense too.

DUI in the United Kingdom is always dealt with by the courts. As is any serious motoring offence.

Fixed penalty tickets that do not get dealt with in court are not criminal convictions.
