A CCJ or a county court judgment is issued if someone takes court action against you claiming you owe them money and you did not respond in time.

How Can I Appeal a CCJ for a Parking Ticket?

If you received a , you may still be able to appeal it and pay only the parking ticket or pay nothing at all. A CCJ can be issued against you without your knowledge and may be issued several months or years after your penalty notice is sent.

Reasons to Appeal a CCJ

There are several reasons to appeal a CCJ, including:

  1. You never received the PCN
  2. You moved, and the PCN was sent to your old address
  3. You already paid or successfully appealed the parking ticket

If you cannot successfully appeal a CCJ, the court will require you to pay the amount decided by the judgment, and you may incur damage to your credit score.

How to Appeal a CCJ

CCJs are often decided in favour of the parking company because the defendant is not present at the time of judgment. If you believe you have reason to appeal a CCJ for a parking ticket as listed in the examples above, you may be able to request for the judgment to be set aside.

You can request a set aside by filling out an N244 appeal application form and paying a court fee. It is best to fill out your N244 appeal application and request the CCJ to be set aside as soon as possible.

A CCJ that is successfully set aside will not remove the initial parking ticket. If the CCJ is set aside, you have the option to appeal or pay the ticket. DoNotPay makes it easy to appeal a CCJ or PCN in minutes. We generate a letter for you to send to the county court or parking company to remove the penalty.
