Is making payments online secure?

Yes, it's safe to pay over the internet. The information you send us is encrypted. This means that nobody can read it as it travels across the internet. A ‘padlock’ will also appear at the bottom right of your browser window indicating that you are in a safe area.

We will receive your credit details using a secure server. This means the transaction is encrypted between your machine and the authority's server. Furthermore, we will not store your credit card details after we have processed your payment.

Traditional website addresses begin "http" - the address for a secure site will always begin with "https".

Once your credit card details have been submitted to us and your credit card company have approved the payment, the payment will be processed.
