You can appeal against the charge if:
- The offence did not occur,
- The same offence has been the subject of a fixed penalty notice or is the subject of criminal proceedings,
- You were not the registered owner/keeper of the vehicle at the time of the offence,
- You were not the hirer of the vehicle at the time of the offence,
- The penalty charge notice exceeded the relevant amount.
- You were the registered owner/keeper of the vehicle at the time of the offence but it was:
- on hire to a driver who had signed a statement taking liability,
- kept by a motor trader,
- taken without the consent of the owner.
We may also consider other appeals if the registered keeper/owner feels that there are other circumstances.
Appeals can be made in writing to:
PO Box 2994
Stoke on Trent
Alternatively you can send it via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
You will need to clearly state your penalty charge notice number starting with the letters GE and your full postal address. Please state your case clearly and simply and include with your appeal copies of any evidence that will support your case.
Please note: No appeals will be accepted via telephone or in person. If we reject your appeal then you will still have the choice to go to an independent adjudicator who will consider your case impartially.
