If you receive a fixed penalty notice

There are two options available if you receive an FPN:

  • Pay the FPN within 14 calendar days of the notice being served (the date is shown on bottom of the notice). No further action will be taken
  • Dispute the serving of the notice and await the court summons or request a court hearing

Some offences offer a lower penalty if paid within 10 days.

If you do not pay or if the court rules against you, you may be liable to pay a higher fine.
