Do you want to dispute a parking ticket? DoNotPay can help.

In 2020, the top 10 UK councils profited $65 million from Penalty Charge Notices (PCN). In addition, it has been estimated that 22,000 tickets are issued by private companies daily. Revenue from parking tickets act as a profitable cash cow for local authorities, but it doesn’t have to affect you.

Whether it’s a parking ticket or speeding ticket, DoNotPay can help you make the best case possible for voiding or otherwise not paying the ticket.

How Do Tickets Affect One’s License?

Penalty points are added to your license if you break traffic laws in the UK. While different offenses carry different penalties, if you collect enough points over a specific time period, it can result in a driving ban.

The minimum penalty for speeding is £100 and 3 points off of your license.

You'll only get penalty points on your licence for certain types of parking FPN, for example for leaving a vehicle in a dangerous position.

🚨 Accumulating 12 points off your license within 3 years will lead to a driving ban.
