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.
The cost of both endorsable and non-endorsable fixed penalty fines are as below:
£50 fine, non-endorsable
£100 fine, non-endorsable
£200 fine, non-endorsable
£300 fine, non-endorsable
£100 fine, endorsable, three penalty points
£200 fine, endorsable, three penalty points
£300 fine, endorsable, six penalty points (Driving without third party insurance)
On receipt of a fixed penalty you have two options available to you:
All Payments should be made using the contact details below; however, cash must not be sent through the post.
Important: Failure to pay the fixed penalty in full, within 28 days, will result in a fine of the original amount plus 50 per cent being registered against the owner of the vehicle at their local magistrates' court.
If you have lost your ticket you can contact the Fixed Penalty Office or the Central Ticket Office to obtain the fixed penalty notice number. Please have the following details to hand:
When you receive an endorsable fine, your licence must be surrendered in order for the issuing police officer/police community support officers/Central Ticket Office to check that it meets the criteria specified by the fixed penalty procedure. It will also be physically endorsed in a Magistrates’ Court.
Important: The period allowed for production and surrender of your driving licence is seven days.
If, even for reasons beyond your control, you are unable to surrender your driving licence within seven clear days, you must contact the nominated police station or the Central Ticket Office, on 0117 945 5220 explaining why you cannot produce it.
