Penalty charge notices and how to pay

You can pay for your penalty charge notice online, by phone or by post. Once a payment has been made, your case is closed and you cannot make an appeal.  

When you pay online you can also look at images of your parking contravention. However if you wish to download the images you must do so before you pay your PCN. The images will not be available online after you have made your payment. 

Pay online 

You will need: 

  • The PCN number 
  • Your vehicle registration number 
  • A valid credit or debit card. 

We do not set the charges for penalty charges notices (PCN). They are set by London Councils.
