Other ways to pay

What happens if you don’t pay

You’ll have to pay the full charge if you don’t pay or appeal your PCN within 14 days. After 14 days, the charge will carry on growing. We may ask an enforcement agent, also known as a bailiff, to collect the money you owe. You’ll also have to pay the bailiff’s fees.
