If you do not pay a PCN within 28 days, you will get a 'charge certificate' and will have 14 days to pay the original fine, plus 50% more.
If you still do not pay, we will send you a 'court order' and the charge will be registered as a debt at the County Court. If the charge is still not paid we will instruct enforcement agents (bailiffs) to collect the outstanding debt. The enforcement agents will add their own fees on to the amount owed.
If you feel that you have been incorrectly issued a penalty charge notice, you can view the evidence or make a challenge against it.
