Penalty Charge Notice Appeal Form
The following form can be submitted to make a challenge against a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). This is the very first stage of the appeal process.
If your challenge is received within 14 days of the date of issue of the PCN and your challenge is subsequently rejected following our consideration, you will generally be given 14 days from the date of our letter or email of rejection to pay the discounted PCN rate. This letter or email will also explain how.
If you fail to ensure that any challenge is received within 14 days from the date of issue of the PCN, then the full PCN amount may be required to be paid, if your challenge is rejected.
However if you have submitted and had the the first appeal rejected, the letter you receive advising of it will also explain how a further appeal is then possible. A second, more formal representation against the PCN may be made by way of the statutory appeals process. This can be done when the registered owner of the vehicle will be sent a Notice to Owner (NtO) form. This second appeal form permits a more formal challenge to the PCN by way of the statutory appeals process. Further information is available regarding this see Notice to Owner Representation Form. (Important please do not complete and submit the NtO form first)
