Parking tickets

Don’t ignore your ticket!

  • If you accept the parking ticket then you should pay it as soon as possible. If you pay within 14 days of receiving the ticket you will only pay 50% of the fine.
  • If you think the ticket has been issued incorrectly and want to challenge it do not make a payment. Once you have paid the ticket you have accepted liability and closed the case, so you can’t then challenge it.
  • If you challenge within 14 days and your challenge is unsuccessful you will still have the opportunity to pay only 50% of the fine.

We are unable to discuss individual parking tickets over the phone. If you want to challenge your ticket you must follow the appeal process.

Parking ticket fines (known as Penalty Charge Notices) are set at £70 or £50 (depending on the contravention), but this is discounted by 50% to £35 or £25 if you pay within 14 days of receiving the ticket.

If the ticket is left unpaid we can pursue the debt through the County Court.

If you are unable to pay online you can:

  • pay your ticket by phone at any time by calling 0345 155 1075, please have the ticket number and registration number to hand, or
  • send a Cheque or Postal Order made payable to Devon County Council, to Parking Services, County Hall, PO Box 811, Exeter EX1 9WA, along with the payment slip at the bottom of the parking ticket


We publish our parking ticket statistics showing how many tickets have been issued in each town. As some tickets are still going through the appeals process, these figures are always published in arrears.
