Fine payment

Pay traffic tickets and other fines.

Online payment

Make a full payment for a:

  • Violation Ticket – Offence Notice
  • Violation Ticket – Summons
  • Notice of Conviction
  • Time to Pay Notice
A summons ticket can only be paid online if there’s an amount in the ‘Voluntary Payment’ box.

If you fully pay your ticket by its due date, you won’t:

  • be charged a late fee
  • need to attend court

The final online unit price of a ticket is made up of 2-3 parts:

  • fine amount
  • service fee (standard)
  • late fee (if a ticket isn’t paid on time)

To make a payment, you’ll need the following:

  • ticket number:
    • for a Time to Pay Notice, use the docket number
  • valid credit or debit card (VISA Credit, VISA Debit, MasterCard, American Express, Interac Online)
  • email address to receive your receipt
  • current web browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer 9 or higher)

Pay your fine online

Partial payments must be made in person.

‘Ticket Not Found’ message

If a ‘Ticket Not Found’ message appears when you click the ‘Pay Your Fine Online’ button, your payment options then depend on the age of your ticket.

Recent ticket

If it’s not yet past the appearance date on your ticket, the ticket has not yet been entered into the online ticket payment system. In this case, you can:

  • pay the ticket online at a later date (up to and including the appearance date on the ticket)
  • pay the ticket at a registry office or courthouse
  • mail your ticket and payment
In rare cases, you may not be able to make an online payment for a ticket until its appearance date.

Older ticket

If your ticket was issued more than 2 years ago, you can either:

  • pay the ticket at a registry office or courthouse
  • mail your ticket and payment

Other payment methods

Any ticket or fine you can pay online can also be paid in person or through the mail.

If you fully pay your ticket on or before its due date, you won’t be charged a late fee.

Mail

Provincial Ticket Production Centre
601-5th Street SW

Your payment must be by cheque or money order made out to the Government of Alberta. Write your ticket number on the back.

Overdue tickets

Traffic tickets

If you don’t pay a traffic ticket for an offence notice by its due date, you’ll be charged a late fee.

You must fully pay an overdue traffic ticket before a registry agent will provide you with vehicle-related services. If you pay this ticket online, you can get these services from a registry agent later that day by showing them your payment receipt.

Non-traffic tickets

Effective May 1, 2017 the Alberta government has changed the enforcement of minor non-traffic tickets to ensure that those who don’t pay them on time are:

  • still held accountable
  • no longer arrested and jailed

Tickets issued on or after May 1

If you don’t pay a non-traffic ticket issued on or after May 1, 2017 by its due date, you’ll be charged a late fee. The fine and late fee can be worked off under the Fine Option Program.

You must fully pay or work off an overdue non-traffic ticket before a registry agent will provide you with vehicle registration services. If you pay this ticket online, you can get these services from a registry agent later that day by showing them your payment receipt.

Tickets issued before May 1

If you don’t pay or work off a non-traffic ticket issued before May 1, 2017 by its due date, a warrant may be issued for your arrest.

You must fully pay an overdue non-traffic ticket before a warrant for your arrest will be removed. You can pay this ticket online or at a courthouse.

After you pay the ticket, keep the receipt with you for at least 3 days to prove you made a payment. It can take up to 72 hours for law enforcement to receive a notice of your payment.
