A person can pay fines for traffic violation tickets including speeding tickets from the Canadian province of British Columbia (B.C.) in several ways. The most common way is through the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC), via mail, phone or in-person at ICBC offices. You can also make payments through various financial institutions, some government offices and Service BC locations throughout the province.
Mail your payment. Mail a check or money order payable to “Insurance Corporation of British Columbia” and a copy of your ticket. If you can’t copy the ticket, provide a note that has your information (complete name, address, date of birth and driver’s license number), the ticket number and date, and the Act and Section number of the offense. Mail your payment and information to: Ticket Payment Processing PO Box 3505 Victoria, BC V8W 3N9 If you need to pay an Intersection Safety Camera (red light camera) ticket, mail to: Ticket Payment Processing Bag Service 6300 STN Terminal Vancouver BC V6B 6G6
Call ICBC at 250-978-8300 (Victoria) or 800-950-1498 (Lower Mainland/and remaining areas of B.C.) to pay your ticket (excluding red light intersection camera tickets). Have your ticket and driver’s license on hand. To pay, provide your credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) information.
Deliver payment for your ticket—excluding red light intersection camera tickets—in person at an ICBC or Expressway driver licensing office, ICBC claim center, provincial court registry, Service BC center or at certain banks or other financial institutions. To locate the closest location, follow the links in the “Paying in Person” section of the ICBC’s “Paying a Traffic Violation Ticket” web page.
- If you’re paying your speeding ticket within 30 days of receiving it, call ICBC to see if you can get a reduced fine. Most traffic violators receive a fine reduction on tickets paid within 30 days.
- If you’re admitting your guilt, but want to dispute the fine amount or need additional time to pay, fill out two forms—“Violation Ticket Notice of Dispute” and “Violation Ticket Statement and Written Reasons” (available at any court registry)—and then file the forms at the registry. A judge will make a decision in regards to your request, which the court will mail to you.
- Never pay an Intersection Safety Camera ticket over the phone or in-person. The Ticket Payment Processing office only accepts payments for these tickets via the mail. If you have questions about your ticket before payment, contact the Integrated Traffic Camera Unit at 604-775-1077 (Lower Mainland) or 800-772-8120 (Remaining areas of B.C.).
- Never send cash via mail to pay your speeding ticket fine.
