Driving Offences and Fines

Fixed penalties provide an efficient, proportionate and direct way of dealing with a wide range of motoring offences.

There are two types of fixed penalty tickets, endorsable and non-endorsable. Non-endorsable is a monetary only fine. Endorsable tickets will carry both a monetary fine and points on your driving license.

Penalties

The cost of both endorsable and non-endorsable fixed penalty fines are as below:

  • £100 fine, endorsable, three penalty points
  • £200 fine, endorsable, three penalty points
  • £300 fine, endorsable, six penalty points
  • £50 fine, non-endorsable
  • £100 fine, non-endorsable
  • £200 fine, non-endorsable
  • £300 fine, non-endorsable
