Fixed Payment Notices Issued: January 2023

From 1 January 2023 the prescribed amounts for Fixed Payment Offences have increased as a result of the Small Public Service Vehicle (Fixed Payment Offences and Driver Licence Period) Regulations.

In addition to these changes, a new Fixed Payment Offence has been introduced for the refusal of a driver of a SPSV to carry a passenger in a wheelchair. The amount for this is €250, reflecting the gravity and nature of the offence.
