Paying or challenging a parking fine

You must pay or challenge a parking fine, also known as a Parking Penalty Charge Notice (PCN), within 28 days of it being issued.

Your fine will be reduced if you pay within 14 days.

Where to pay or challenge

You'll need your vehicle registration number and the 10-digit reference number printed on your PCN. This starts with two letters followed by 8 numbers, or 7 numbers if the PCN ends in A.

Check the first 2 letters of your reference number to pay or make a challenge:
