From 1 January 2023 the prescribed amounts for Fixed Payment Offences will increase 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 will be introduced for the refusal of a driver of a SPSV to carry a passenger in a wheelchair. The amount for this will be €250, reflecting the gravity and nature of the offence.
