Fees will rise for graduated fixed penalties

Department for Transport have recently announced that fixed penalty levels are expected to increase from July 2013. The changes are being introduced following an extensive public consultation which took place in 2012 with the road safety groups and Police forces.

As well as affecting most motoring fixed penalties offences, graduated fixed penalties and financial deposits will also increase due to the changes. This will mainly affect commercial goods and passenger carrying vehicles, and includes offences like drivers’ hours and overloading.

The changes are as follows;

  • £30 non-endorsable fine will rise to £50 
  • A £60 endorsable and non-endorsable fine will rise to £100 
  • A £120 endorsable and non-endorsable fine will rise to £200 
  • A £200 endorsable and non-endorsable fine will rise to £300 

It is also being proposed that the new legislation will increase the maximum amount of deposit requirement that can be taken at the roadside (Applies to non-UK vehicles). Penalty points will not change.

Most penalty levels have not changed since 2000 and these changes are intended to ensure that penalties reflect the seriousness of the offence and are consistent with the penalty levels in other areas of offending.

For more information about current fixed penalty levels please see VOSA’s Guide to Graduated Fixed Penalties and Financial Deposits
