If you have been fined on or after 22 January 2010, you can now pay your fine anytime online. The term "fine" is used to cover court-imposed monetary penalties, juror fines and fixed penalties which have been registered with the court.
If your fine can be paid online, the court documentation, fine notice or letter, you have received will contain a Case Reference and an Online Account Reference. You will need both of these in order to pay your fine online.
At present, we only accept MasterCard and Visa credit and debit cards for online payments.
You may also pay your fine by telephone using a credit or debit card. Telephone the Customer Service Centre on 028 7126 1329 during normal office hours; or by posting a cheque or postal order payable to Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunals Service, quoting your case reference number and name, to Customer Service Centre, P.O. Box 256, Londonderry.
Note that failure to pay your fine within the time allowed may result in a warrant being issued, committing you to prison or a young offenders centre. The issue of a warrant may also increase the amount you are due to pay.
No fine payment can be made once a warrant has been issued.
