Pay or contest a Penalty Charge Notice
You may receive a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN), also known as a parking ticket or fine, for a parking offence or moving traffic offence (e.g. box junctions, bus lanes, moving traffic). Notices may be left on your vehicle or be sent to you in the post. We use civil enforcement officers (CEOs) and CCTV to issue PCNs. If you receive a PCN, you have the option to either pay it or dispute it.
Before proceeding please ensure that you have:
- your PCN notice number, which is 10 digits long starting with "AF" (if it is not, your penalty was issued on a "red route" by Transport for London or outside Redbridge; please refer to the correct authority)
- your vehicle registration number.
- a valid credit or debit card - this system will accept Visa, Mastercard and Switch/Maestro
Do not ignore Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs). If you pay your PCN within the specified time limit, the PCN will be payable at the reduced rate of 50%.
