Appeal a parking ticket

Did you get a parking ticket (naheffingsaanslag)? And do you disagree with it? Then you can make an appeal at the municipality.

How does it work?

Would you like to make an appeal? Submit your appeal within 6 weeks after the date (dagtekening) stated on the parking ticket. Are you making an appeal later? Explain why you were not able to make an appeal earlier.

Do you want to make an appeal for more than 1 parking fine? Fill in a separate form for each fine.

Objection possible

You can make an appeal if:

  • You pulled your car over to the side of the road to administer first aid at an accident. Or to get quickly to a doctor or hospital for yourself or somebody else.
  • The car no longer belongs to you. Your registration in the number plate registry is incorrect.
  • Your car was stolen.

Did you already pay the parking ticket? Then you can still make an appeal.

No objection possible

You cannot make an appeal if:

  • You had personal reasons.
  • Your bank pass or credit card was declined.
  • You returned to your car too late. For example because your appointment took longer than planned or because you got lost.
  • You think the amount is too high.

Make an appeal

You can make an appeal online or by post. First check what you need in your appeal.

Needed in your appeal

  • The number of the parking ticket (assessment number).
  • The number plate of your car.

Make an appeal online

You can make an appeal using the online form. You have to log in with you DigiD.

You can take a maximum break of 10 minutes when filling in the online form. You will lose all of your work if you stop for a longer time. Do you need more time?

The steps (menu items) which you have completed in their entirety will then be saved. If you provide your email address, the municipality will send you a link.
