Fixed Penalty Notice

  • Can I dispute a fixed penalty notice?
    Yes, as it is a take it or leave it offer, you have 28 days to reject it.
  • I want to avoid penalty points. Can I pay a larger fine instead?
    No, the conditional offer is three points and £60. If you are not happy with the offer, you can argue your case at court, but the penalty is unlikely to be reduced.
  • I have received two penalty notices. Can I accept both offers in the 28 day time limit?
    If they have been issued by the same unit, you can return them together. If not, send of the first one, requesting that your licence is returned quickly. If your licence is not returned within the deadline, contact the other authority to ask for an extension.
