Don’t ignore your ticket!
- If you accept the parking ticket then you should pay it as soon as possible. If you pay within 14 days of receiving the ticket you will only pay 50% of the fine.
- If you think the ticket has been issued incorrectly and want to challenge it do not make a payment. Once you have paid the ticket you have accepted liability and closed the case, so you can’t then challenge it.
- If you challenge within 14 days and your challenge is unsuccessful you will still have the opportunity to pay only 50% of the fine.
I want to:
Parking ticket fines (known as Penalty Charge Notices) are set at £70 or £50 (depending on the contravention), but this is discounted by 50% to £35 or £25 if you pay within 14 days of receiving the ticket.
If the ticket is left unpaid we can pursue the debt through the County Court.
If you are unable to pay online you can:
- write to Parking Services, Devon County Council, County Hall, P O Box 811, Exeter EX1 9WA, using the payment slip at the bottom of your Penalty Charge Notice
- pay in person at Devon County Council Offices at County Hall Exeter, Civic Centre Barnstaple, or Ryefields Kingsteignton
- pay your ticket by phone on 0345 155 1075
