We will register the total fine as a debt at the Traffic Enforcement Centre (TEC) and is the same as a County Court Order. We will send you the appropriate form after the debt has been registered at the TEC, and you may submit a witness statement.
A sum to cover court costs will be added to the fine.
A witness statement is an oath sworn by someone who has a debt registered against them. You may only make a witness statement if you:
- did not receive a PCN
- made a representation to us but did not receive a Notice of Rejection
- appealed to an Adjudicator but did not receive a response from the Traffic Penalty Tribunal
- have already paid the fine
You must submit the witness statement by the date shown on the Order for Recovery. If you need more time to submit it, you may apply for it, using a PE2 - application to file a statutory declaration out of time form. The form can only be used to extend time for submitting the statement, not to dispute the fine.
Proceedings for contempt of court may be brought against you if you make, or cause to be made, a false statement in an application without an honest belief in its truth.
