Your traffic ticket/notice will indicate whether your traffic offence is serious or minor. If the ticket specifies an “offer of composition”, your offence is considered minor. You can pay a “composition” to settle the ticket/notice without going to court, provided you pay on time.
If there is no offer of composition, your offence is considered serious. You must attend court on the appointed date. If you plead guilty, the court will impose a sentence. If you claim trial, a date will be set for the case to be heard.

If your notice of traffic offence has expired
Use any AXS payment channels to plead guilty to the traffic offence. You will have to pay a court fine that is higher than the initial composition fine, but much lower than the court fine if you were to attend court. If you have missed the 5pm deadline on the court date, you have to attend the court hearing on the date and time stated in your notice of traffic offence.
If you think you have a good reason for committing the offence
If you think you have a good reason for committing the offence, you can try to mitigate the offence. Use any AXS payment channels and answer “Yes” when asked if you want to mitigate the offence. You will be required to attend a court hearing and explain your reasons to the judge.
If you feel your summons was not justifiable
If you feel that you did not commit the offence, or that the summons was not justifiable, you may make an appeal by writing to the Traffic Police or LTA:
