Most road users have been issued a fine for a minor road indiscretion at some time or another, yet often the fine is either not received, or it gets forgotten about, leading to problems at roadblocks, increased penalties, or in some cases even legal action. AA Fine Payment Assist offers you a quick and easy solution, saving you time, money and embarrassment. You’ll receive notice of all traffic fines in your name within days of being issued, ensuring you can receive the maximum settlement discount. We’ll also check and verify that the correct process has been followed. Where there are discrepancies, we’ll manage the required communication to have them revoked, and, where appropriate, we’ll pursue any action required on your part to get fines reduced, or even squashed.
AA Fine Payment Assist will check your details against the traffic fines database on a regular basis. We will contact you immediately to inform you of any fines that have been issued, or any fines that are still outstanding, and request you to provide documents to support any claim for a fine reduction, such as a statement of the incident, as well as a copy of your driver’s license.
We will present the merits of a fine reduction on to the relevant traffic department on your behalf, and 100% of any recovery or discount will be passed back to you.
You will receive an invoice for your fines payments and, once paid on our secure site, we’ll provide with you proof that fine has been settled and the fine has been cleared.
As a policyholder, you’ll get:
Fast, efficient and proactive traffic fines monitoring and prompt notification.
Guaranteed discounts on your fines, passed directly to you.
Easy, no fuss payment facilities, with no hidden cost to you.
Legal assistance to assess the legitimacy and validity of all your fines, and we’ll contest your invalid
fines on your behalf.
