New online service for commercial drivers to pay DVSA fines

Published on: Jan 29 2019 at 08:17 PM

A new service on GOV.UK, developed by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), makes it easier to pay a roadside fine.

DVSA examiners have the power to carry out spot checks on commercial vehicle drivers in England, Scotland and Wales. They can give you a fine (called a fixed penalty) if you commit an offence.

 

 

 

You can now pay these fines using the secure pay a DVSA roadside fine service on GOV.UK, instead of using Chip and PIN at the roadside. The service is available 24-hours a day and can be accessed anywhere in the world. It works on mobile phones, tablets and computers. It lets you pay:

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

 

You can either pay the fine yourself or ask for it to be sent to your company to pay it for you.

The rules for when you can be fined, how much you have to pay and the deadline for paying the fine are not changing.

 

Foreign-registered vehicles:

Foreign-registered vehicles are subject to the same rules as vehicles registered in Great Britain. But UK-based drivers will still have 28 days to pay fixed penalties.
