Fixed penalties

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:

  • £100 fine, endorsable, three penalty points
  • £200 fine, endorsable, three penalty points
  • £200 fine, endorsable, six penalty points

  • £50 fine, non-endorsable
