I got a couple of speeding tickets about 10 years ago.  They are no longer on by driving record, so I can not get details about them.  I think they may have been over $100 fines since all tickets in my state are.  I don't remember any details about them (like how much over the speed limit they were).  Should I disclose to them that I had a couple tickets, but I don't remember details?  I would not be able to send in official documents since I can not get them.  How strict are they about dislcosure?

Tell 'em and you're safe.  It ain't worth the risk to hide anything.

I just sent in my application to the OED.  
 
I checked yes for #16 b/c of a traffic ticket back in 1998 doing 80mph in a 65mph on the freeway.  I didn't have a copy of the ticket but gave the details in a statement and a copy of my current DMV record.
 
I doubt they ask for more but it is always safer to disclose.

I was wondering - if you are admitted to practice before the patent office as an agent, then go to Law school and get refused to the state bar on Character & Fitness grounds, would that impact your standing with the PTO?  How about vice-versa?
 
I'm just wondering if I have a "safety net" just in case I do something stupid in Law School.

query: one of the CF questions inquires whether one has been "held" by authorities. can anyone decode this term for me? are they asking if I have ever been detained by the police for any reason?
