Penalty increased without notice of contravention: how to challenge?

Verified 09 March 2021 - Legal and Administrative Information Directorate (Prime Minister)

Why a flat fine increased without notice of violation?

You receive standard fine increased without receiving the original penalty if you did not change your address on your Certificate of Registration (carte grise).

The notice of violation is sent to the address indicated on the carte grise of the vehicle.

If fine is not paid in 45 days, its amount shall be increased.

If you received a reminder letter

You will receive a reminder letter if your new address is identified.

To avoid paying the surcharge, you must:

  • Change your carte grise address if you haven't already done so. You have to do it within 3 months after the reminder letter has been sent.
  • Pay the lump sum fine in 45 days. The deadline runs from the change of address declaration on your carte grise or from the sending of the reminder letter if you made the declaration before.

To pay the lump sum penalty, you must prepare the following documents:

  • Request for cancellation of mark-up, completed, dated and signed. This form is attached to the reminder letter you received.
  • Check for the amount of the lump sum fine payable to the Treasury
  • Payment heel at bottom of reminder letter
  • Copy of your carte grise, updated with your new address

Send these documents to the address indicated on the request for cancellation of the mark-up.

If you dispute the offence which resulted in the fine, you can make a claim online or by mail.
