How to pay a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN)

If you receive a PCN it is your responsibility to ensure payment is made by the dates specified, to prevent further recovery action. For enquiries contact Customer Services on 020 8891 1411.

Do not pay for the PCN if you wish to appeal, as the case will be closed on the grounds of liability being accepted, and no further correspondence will be responded to.

What you will need

Before you send your postal payment you will need to ensure you:

  • make crossed cheques or postal orders payable to 'LBRuT';
  • write the Penalty Charge Notice number (RTnnnnnnnn) and your address on the back of the cheque;
  • include the 'payment slip' from the Penalty Charge Notice/Notice to Owner/Charge Certificate;
  • do not send cash, bank notes or blank postal orders as responsibility cannot be taken for loss
  • include a stamped self-addressed envelope if you require a receipt.

Instalments

To be considered for instalment payments, you must be on an active debt management plan with a recognised agency, and provide documented evidence.

Instalment arrangements are only available after the issue of a Notice To Owner (or Enforcement Notice). Arrangements cannot be made for the 50% discounted fine amount as this is intended as an incentive to pay early.
