Infringement Notice: On receiving, via registered mail or served in person, a ticket (formally called an Infringement Notice), you have the following options within the first 32 days:

Pay a discounted penalty

Make a representation to the RTIA

Arrange to pay in monthly instalments

Nominate the driver of the vehicle

Elect to be tried in court

Courtesy Letter: After 32 days you will be served with a Courtesy Letter, requesting action within another 32 days (from the date of the Courtesy Letter). Your options are less since you cannot pay a discounted penalty any more. You will also have to pay an additional Courtesy Letter fee. On receiving a Courtesy letter you may within 32 days:

Pay the Penalty (no discount) as well as the fee for the Courtesy Letter

Make a representation to the RTIA

Arrange to pay in monthly instalments

Elect to be tried in court

Enforcement Order: If you do not respond to the Courtesy Letter, you will be served with an Enforcement Order. The Enforcement Order will demand that you pay your penalty, plus the Courtesy Letter fee, plus an additional Enforcement Order fee, within 32 days (from the date the Enforcement Order was served). Demerit points will be allocated and recorded against your name. Once the Enforcement Order is served, you do not have any of the previous options left. The only option available to you is to: 

Pay the Penalty (no discount) as well as the fees for the Courtesy Letter and Enforcement Order

Apply for revocation of an Enforcement Order

Warrant of Execution: If you do not respond in a satisfactory manner to the Enforcement Order, a Warrant will be issued and handed to a Sheriff for immediate execution. The Warrant may allow the Sheriff to:

Seize and sell your movable property to defray the penalty, fees and cost applicable.

Seize and deface your driving licence and/or professional driving permit.

Remove and deface the licence disks of all your vehicles.

If applicable, seize and deface the operator cards of all the vehicles for which you are the registered operator.

Immobilise all your vehicles.
