Fixed Charge Notices - Traffic

How do I complete the Declaration Section?

You must complete each part of the declaration section in order for payment to be accepted.

· Driver number on licence/permit –  On paper licences, the number required here is the number in BLACK print on the first page of the licence to the left of the photo.  On plastic card licences/permits, the driver number required is at 4d.

· Name - As in licence/permit - You must complete this section exactly as per your driving licence. For example if the licence states John Patrick Smith and the notice states John Smith then you must fill in John Patrick Smith in this section. This is to ensure that the penalty points are applied to the correct driving licence file. Payment will not be accepted if this section is completed incorrectly

· Signature on Declaration - By signing the Declaration you are accepting that you committed the offence. The only signature acceptable on the declaration is that of the person to whom the notice is addressed. Under no circumstances can any other person sign the form on behalf of the driver/payee. Where a person is outside the jurisdiction or not immediately available you should contact the Fixed Charge Processing Office, 1890 30 40 60 or +353 504 59800, for further information
