Frequently asked questions
Here are a collection of questions frequently asked the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.
Some common questions
The hearing will be fairly informal. The council may send a representative, although the Civil Enforcement Officer who issued the penalty will not normally attend the appeal. You may bring a witness and/or a friend if you wish.
You will not have to take an oath but if you deliberately tell the Adjudicator something that is not true, you could be prosecuted. At the end of the hearing, you will normally be informed of the decision there and then, although occasionally the Adjudicator may have to adjourn the case to another day. The Adjudicator's full reasons and decision will be confirmed by post afterwards.
