Answer for Foreign national driving convictions

Answered By:

Neither the MOPAC nor the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) collects data relating to the number of foreign nationals reported for driving offences. The systems used in processing traffic offences do not have a unique identifier for foreign nationals and so this management information is not available.

If an individual does not pay a fine, it is for the Courts to decide what action should be taken against them
