Consulting and Paying Sharjah Traffic Fines
There are many ways to check if you have an outstanding traffic fine in Sharjah and pay for it: you can use the Sharjah Police website, the MOI UAE app, the Sahl app or kiosks, or you can even go in person to a police station.
Paying through the Sharjah Police Website
The Sharjah Police website allows you to consult any fines you may have as well as pay for them online. The process is simple; once on the Sharjah Police website, follow these steps:
Step 1: Click on “Traffic Services”
Step 2: Then select “Traffic Fines Payment”
Step 3: You will be prompted to enter your traffic code number (available on your vehicle’s registration and your driver’s license) and your vehicle plate number. You may also need your Emirates ID number and mobile number.
Step 4: Enter the required information and click “Search”
The website will present you with a list of traffic fines, if any, with details such as type of violation, date and amount to be paid. Here you can select which ones you would like to pay for and follow the instructions to pay with a credit or debit card.
Once payment has been processed successfully, you will receive a confirmation email that you should keep for your records.
Important Note: The Sharjah Police Department has a fine discount program in place that offers reductions of up to 35% to those who pay their fines within 60 days of getting the notice.
Contesting a Sharjah Traffic Fine
If you believe you’ve been mistakenly fined, you can contest it. The first step is to understand the fine details thoroughly and carefully, such as date and time, the type of violation and location. Ensure you have confirmation and proof that something is incorrect or that the fine doesn’t apply.
Then, you’ll need to visit the Sharjah Police Website and familiarize yourself with the contestation procedures: then, file an objection.
You have 15 days of getting the fine notice to submit it, which can be done online or at a Police Service Center. Remember to present supporting documents and evidence, anything relevant such as photographs, or witness statements to corroborate your case; and make sure to include your vehicle and personal information.
