Pay your parking fine ticket starting with RD

How to pay

You will need your vehicle registration number and your 10 digit Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) number as well as your debit or credit card information.

You cannot pay and challenge the ticket at the same time. Payment of the Penalty Charge Notice will close any pending challenge and close the case.

What happens if you do not pay

If the penalty charge is not paid on or before the end of the 28 day period as specified on the front of the notice, or successfully challenged the council may serve a Notice to Owner (NtO) on the owner of the vehicle requiring payment of the penalty charge. 

The owner can then make representations to the council and may appeal to an independent adjudicator if those representations are rejected. The NtO will contain instructions for doing this.

If you challenge this PCN but the council issues an NtO anyway, the owner must follow the instructions on the NtO.
