We have put together a list of frequently asked questions regarding this process. The list will be reviewed and amended on a regular basis in the light of feedback received from the general public.

What is a traffic offence report (TOR)?

TORs replace all endorsable fixed penalty notices. The officer will hand a copy of this document to you, and will send the original copy to the Central Ticketing Office (CTO) for processing.

What happens next?

The CTO will contact you by post. They will outline the options available to you, which could be any (or all) of the following:-

  1. An offer of an educational course
  2. A conditional offer of a fixed penalty and/or driving licence penalty points
  3. Appearance at a Magistrates’ Court

If you haven’t heard from the CTO within 28 days from the date of issue of the TOR, please phone Gloucestershire Police on 101 and ask to be put through to CTO

Why have I not received a course offer?

Why have I not received a course offer?

What happens if I ignore your correspondence?

If you do not act within the timelines stated in our correspondence you will disqualify yourself from any offer of educational course, or fixed penalty option and your case will proceed to Court.

Where can I obtain course location information?

If you are eligible for a course, full details will be sent to you. These are nationally accredited courses and are available at other locations across the country if it is inconvenient for you to attend in Gloucestershire.
