Use this service to pay:

  • fixed penalties for vehicle defects and other offences such as breaking the rules around drivers’ hours
  • immobilisation fees
  • court deposits

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) will send you an email and text message telling you the payment code, how much to pay and by when.

If you do not pay your fine on time your lorry, bus or coach could be immobilised, you might have to pay more, or you could be taken to court.
