Appealing International Fines

Procedural errors, technical issues with measuring equipment, traffic-signage shortcomings, misinterpretation of rules by enforcement agencies—there are numerous reasons why a fine might be unjust. An appeal process can save you thousands of euros, but it means you have to be constantly on top of things – unless you have TIN as your counsel.

Has a driver received a fine? Then first activate our fine payment service to get back on the road quickly. When that most important task has been completed, we’ll calmly assess the specific situation and the feasibility of an appeal. If viable, we’ll gather evidence (such as tachograph data, witness statements, photos, or other relevant documentation) and file an appeal according to the procedures of the country concerned.

Fines and penalties we contest for our clients are related to issues such as:

  • Driving hours legislation;
  • Tachograph regulations;
  • Maximum mass or dimension limits;
  • Load security;
  • Permits;
  • Technical condition of vehicles;
  • Driving bans;
  • Missing documents.

Additional Legal Support

As a client, you also benefit from TIN’s legal knowledge and experience relevant to inspections by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) and counterparts across Europe. We provide on-site assistance, submit opinions on the intention to impose fines, and, if necessary, appeal such fines.

We also offer support relevant to checks on minimum wage laws domestically and abroad, in case of seized driver’s licenses and collecting international claims. Finally, you can count on our expert advice concerning any issues relating to GDPR.

Please feel free to contact us for further information. We’re available during office hours on +31 (0)85 0719 600 and would be delighted to explain the many ways we keep you rolling.
