Make a plea for an offence

Use this service to plead guilty or not guilty online.

You must be either:

  • the person charged with the offence (not someone else helping out)
  • a company secretary, director or solicitor for the company charged with the offence

Before you start

You'll need the information we sent you in the post.

If you're pleading for yourself (not on behalf of a company)

You'll need:

  • details of income and benefits
  • your National Insurance number
  • your driving licence if you have one (traffic offences only)

If you want to plead not guilty

You'll need:

  • names and addresses of any witnesses you want to bring to your trial
  • any dates you cannot attend court

If you have questions about your case or need help making your plea online, you can contact us.

This service is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).
