Payment

Fine payment

Payment for SafeRoads Alberta related fines can be made through the SafeRoads portal or at any Alberta Registry Agent. You cannot process Immediate Roadside Sanctions (IRS) payments at a courthouse.

To pay your IRS fine at an Alberta registry agent, present the original copy of your Notice of Adminstrative Penalty. Payments made at an Alberta registry agent may be subject to a service charge.

Alberta registry agents cannot accept partial payments of current Notice of Administrative Penalty fines. Current fine payments made at an Alberta registry agent must be made in full. Partial payment is only available for overdue fines.

You can make partial payments of IRS fines through the SafeRoads portal.

See Pay your penalty for more information.
