Charges for PCNs in Watford

You have 28 days to pay  your PCN from the day of issue. 

If you pay within 14 days the cost is reduced:

  • £35 for serious contraventions - like parking on a double yellow line or in a disabled bay
  • £25 for overstaying the time on a pay and display ticket

After 14 days the full cost is:

  • £70 for serious contraventions 
  • £50 for overstaying the time on a pay and display ticket

So we recommend you pay within 14 days to save money

If the PCN is not paid within 28 days, a Notice to Owner letter is sent and you'll have 28 days more to pay the full cost. 

After this,  the charge is increased by 50% to:

  • £105 for serious contraventions 
  • £75 for overstaying the time on a pay and display ticket

A fee of £8 will be added to this  cost 14 days after this increase.
