What is a Fixed Penalty Notice?
A Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) can be issued for motoring offences and offer an opportunity to settle an
offence without the need to go through court. Once the FPN is paid, all liability of the offence is
discharged and won’t be part of a criminal record.
How much will I have to pay if I get a Fixed Penalty Notice?
A fixed penalty notice can range between £50 - £300 for motoring and traffic offences, depending on the
seriousness of the offence.
Will I be issued points on my licence if I receive an FPN?
Depending on the offence, you may or may not be issued points on your licence if you receive an FPN.
Endorsable FPNs, which are usual for more severe offences, will incur licence points. If the offence is
serious it may go to court.
