Fines and penalty points

Fines

Save your pennies and avoid a fine

Non endorsable penalty notices are issued for a number of offences for which there is only a fine to pay.

Under what circumstances can I be fined?

There are two ranges of offences that lead to a fine:

  • Moving offences
  • Unnecessary o​bstruction

What will happen if I am issued a non-endorsable penalty notice?

Moving offences carry a fine of £50 and unnecessary obstruction has a fine of £40.

I want to contest a notice, what do I do?

Information about how to pay, or how to contest a notice are all contained within the driver's copy of the notice.

Fines with licences penalty points

A fine with penalty points on my driving licence

Endorsable​ fixed penalty notices are issued for offences which, by law, have a mandatory endorsement of three penalty points on a driving licence and a £100 fine. With the exception of driving with ‘No Insurance’ this is a fine of £300 and six penalty points. A police officer can request that the driver produce additional driving documents, such as insurance.

What will happen if I am issued an endorsable fixed penalty notice?

The Driving Licence must be surrendered within seven days of the notice being issued. If you hold a new style Licence consisting of a photo-card and paper counterpart, only the Photo-card must be surrendered.

I want to contest a notice, what do I do?

Information regarding how to pay the fine or contest the notice are contained within the driver's copy of the notice.

Will I be charged?

The final decision regarding whether or not to charge someone for an offence is now usually undertaken by the Crown Prosecution Service not the police. For further information on the CPS, please visit the website www.cps.gov.uk.​​
