Those of us who use our personal car daily, one of our main concerns is the possibility of getting a traffic ticket. Traffic fines are accompanied by sanctions that can lead to a financial penalty and also the loss of points on your driving license. The sanction to be imposed will depend on the type of infraction that has been committed. Of course, if we do not comply with the regulations in force on Spanish roads, the competent bodies in this matter are in charge of notifying us, but how can I know if I have a fine?
If you think that you may have been fined for committing an infraction, the organizations that must notify you of a traffic fine are the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) and City Councils and Autonomous Communities with jurisdiction over Traffic matters such as Catalonia (through the service Catalan Traffic), the Basque Country (through its Traffic Directorate) and Navarra, as detailed by the DGT itself.
Even if you have not received a postal letter in your mailbox, you can find out if you have received a traffic ticket by visiting the official DGT website. As? In the Traffic Headquarters, look for the 'Access the Electronic Office' section. Once at the electronic headquarters, search for 'Fines' and 'Consultations from the BOE's Single Edictal Board (TEU)'. You can find your possible fine by clicking on 'Without certificate' where you will be asked for the vehicle registration number and your ID or, failing that, the name of the vehicle driver.
If what you are looking for is to be completely aware of your violations without waiting for a letter to arrive in your mailbox, you can also download the DGT application, miDGT. Once inside, you will see the vehicles in your name as well as the points you have on your driving license. To find out if you have any fines, select the 'My Fines' section in the upper left menu. Once inside, the DGT informs you whether or not you have pending sanctions. In addition, you have an option to pay directly from the app for a fine that has been imposed on you on the road. In this way, you do not have to go to a bank office or to the different Provincial Traffic Headquarters.
Even if you don't have the application, you can also find out if you have a fine by registering at the DG's Electronic Headquarters and having the digital certificate in your possession. Subsequently, you must register at the Road Electronic Directorate (DEV). In this way, you will be notified via SMS that you must check your DEV mailbox.
