Several payment methods are available to you to pay your constat with Constats Express before the prescribed time limit (30 days).

If you fail to pay or to respond to the offence by pleading before the prescribed deadline (30 days), a judge will examine your file without notifying you and may sentence you.

This will have the legal consequence of adding additional costs (Tariff of court costs).

If you are unable to pay the amount in full within the prescribed time (30 days), you may enter a plea of guilty. A guilty plea without full payment will add fees (Tariff of court costs) to your file and you may discuss a payment arrangement with a collector.
