Parking tickets

This section includes information on how to pay for parking tickets and what to do if you think that you have received a ticket in error.

The Swedish Transport Agency looks after the administration of parking tickets issued on the municipalities' streets. However, we do not look after the administration of tickets from private parking companies.

The Swedish Transport Agency:

  • checks that payments have been made within the prescribed period,
  • issues remittance slips and reminders,
  • refers unpaid matters to the Enforcement Service.

Do you think that you have received a parking ticket in error?

If you consider that you have received a parking ticket in error, you can apply for rectification. You can do this by visiting the police station in the community where you received the parking ticket. You must take your parking ticket with you.

If your application is not approved, you can write and contest your liability to pay (appeal). Send your letter to the address stated on the parking ticket.

Keep in mind that the parking fine must be paid even if you consider it to be in error. The fine will be refunded to you if your application is approved. Provisions on parking fines are contained in the Parking Fines Act (1976:206) (in Swedish only).

Paying fines

Payments must be made to the following account:

  • Bank giro account no. 5051-6905

If you do not use the printed remittance slip issued, you must state the matter number or OCR number.
If you are paying via the Internet, you must state the OCR/reference number shown on your payment slip.
The owner of the vehicle in question is always responsible for the fine being paid.

Paying from abroad

You can pay the Swedish Transport Agency from abroad.

How to get a refund

If you contest a parking ticket and are proved right, the fine that has been charged will be refunded to you. If you have a PlusGiro account, the money will be repaid into this account. In other cases, we will send the amount via Swedbank's payment system.

Swedbank has a register of the accounts reported from its own systems, from other banks, PlusGiro, personal accounts and private giro accounts. If an account has been registered, the money will be transferred into this account. Otherwise, we will send you a payment advice. This advice is formulated as an authorisation for future account deposits. You should state on this advice the account to which future payments should be made.
