You may be unable to pay your fine online because:
Your fine can't be found - if your fine has been recently issued it may not have been registered on the system yet.
The final payment date has passed -some fines can only be paid up to 28 days after they were issued.
Your fine is endorsable - if your fine carries penalty points (i.e. your Driving Record required to be endorsed) you must either take or post your Driving Licence along with your payment to any Sheriff or JP Court.If you hold a photocard licence and paper counterpart then you should ONLY send the photocard part to the court. If you send the counterpart it will be sent to DVLA for destruction. You can check your "Driving Record" by contacting the DVLA online at www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence or by telephone by contacting the DVLA enquiry line on 0300 790 6801. Fines of this type are identified at the foot of the ticket, as shown below.
An enforcement action has been applied to your fine - if your fine is overdue it may be subject to ongoing enforcement action and you may be unable to pay your fine online. For further details you should contact any Sheriff or JP Court.
Your account has been paid in full - if your account has been paid in full (i.e. it has a zero outstanding balance) no further action is required by you.
The account for your fine is closed - if your account has been closed (for example, if it has been withdrawn) no further action is required by you.
Your account is locked - if you make too many incorrect attempts to enter the correct validation information (i.e. Surname or Vehicle Registration) your account will be locked and you will be unable to pay your fine online. For further details you should contact any Sheriff or JP Court.
Your fine has been transferred to a Non-Scottish Court - you should continue to make payments to your nominated Non-Scottish Court and they will send your payment to the appropriate Scottish Court.
