Around 7 years ago potentially been convicted of drink driving.

I'm very aware of my actions. I have no idea if my license was revoked and I was disqualified or I was just disqualified.

Where would I find this information?

If you were convicted of driving or attempting to drive whilst over the prescribed legal limit for alcohol, you are likely to have been given a disqualification. Depending on your reading, this period of disqualification is likely to have ended. If you were convicted of being in charge of a motor vehicle whilst over the prescribed legal limit for alcohol, you may have been given 10 penalty points or a disqualification. If you were given points and the offence took place within the first two years of driving, your licence will have been revoked under the Road Traffic (New Drivers) Act 1995.
