Get additional time to pay your statement of offence

Last updated March 11, 2022

Were you ticketed, but are unable to pay your statement of offence by the deadline? You can plead guilty and get additional time to pay. Find out how here.

You have 30 days from the date of issue to pay your statement of offence. If you pay your ticket after the deadline, legal fees and proceedings against you will be undertaken.

How to get additional time to pay 

If you know you can’t pay your ticket by the deadline, you can enter a guilty plea.

After pleading guilty, a judgment is rendered and you are given 30 additional days to pay your statement of offence. Once you have pleaded guilty, you can no longer contest the infraction.

Fees apply to enter your plea (see  Tariff of Court Costs in Penal Matters). Plan accordingly for your payment to be received and processed before the deadline.

If a judgment has already been rendered

Do you need an extension for an incident for which a judgment has already been rendered? You will need to speak to an agent at municipal court. Visit a point of service or contact the court by phone or e-mail.
