How to pay your Court Fine by telephone using a credit or debit card

You can pay your fine by phoning 0300 790 9901 (in England) or 0300 790 9980 (for Wales). You will need to have the following information ready:

  • the division
  • the fine account number

These are both in the top right-hand corner of your Fine Notice letter. If you have not yet received your Fine Notice letter, you won't be able to pay using this method.

You cannot pay fixed penalty fines or parking fines using this phone service.

Important information about paying your fine

Payments must be received on or before the date ordered. You don't need to wait for your Fine Notice before paying or setting up payment arrangements. If payment is made after the due date and enforcement action has commenced, the court may reject your payment.
