Finding out if you have traffic fines and paying them has never been easier, especially if you bank with FNB (First National bank.) You won’t even need the traffic fine number. All you’ll need is an FNB bank account, a valid South African I.D number and an FNB online banking profile, (unless you’re going to use the ATM method.)
Here’s how to view and pay traffic fines using FNB online banking:
- Log in to your FNB online banking profile here.
- Click on the ‘Payments’ tab
- Click on ‘Traffic Fines’
- Click on ‘I.D number’
- Insert your personal I.D number if you haven’t done so already.
- You’ll n now see a list of your fines if you have any.
- If you would like to pay a fine, simply click on the fine and follow the prompts.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For this method, you’ll need to be registered to FNB online banking, and you will need to bank with FNB; if you haven’t done that yet, make sure you read How To Register For FNB Online Banking here. And, How to Open a Bank Account With FNB.
It’s as simple as that. If you want to view your fine on the FNB app instead then keep reading, I’ll cover that next.
View & Pay Traffic Fines On FNB Mobile App
If you already have the mobile app installed, then you might want to view and pay for your traffic fine here instead.
- Open your FNB mobile app and log in.
- Tap on the hamburger menu at the top right of your screen.
- Tap on the ‘Nav-igate life’ menu option
- Tap on the ‘Car’ tab
- Tap on ‘My Fines tab’
- Here you’ll be able to either view or pay any traffic fines that are shown.
There you have it, it’s as simple as that.
INSIDER TIP: If you don’t have the FNB app yet I highly recommend getting it for your mobile phone. It makes managing your finances so much easier, and it will increase the amount of eBucks you can earn. To get started, download the FNB app for android here, and for iPhone here.
View & Pay Traffic Fines On FNB Cellphone Banking
If you don’t have FNB online banking or the mobile app, then you’ll also be able to view and pay your traffic fines by using cellphone banking.
Before you do, though, you’re going to want to make sure you’ve already subscribed to online banking. To subscribe for cellphone banking, simply dial *120*321# on your mobile phone and follow the prompts.
Have you subscribed to FNB cellphone banking? Great! Here’s how you can view and pay your traffic fines:
- First dial *120*321#
- Next, select option 2 called ‘Banking’
- Now select option 4 which is ‘Payments’
- Select ‘Traffic fines’ which is option 6
- You’ll see a list of all your current traffic fines
- You can either select a traffic fine to pay or search for one using your I.D or reference number
- Select the account you would like to pay from
- Then finally confirm the transaction
There we have it. That’s all you need to do to view and pay traffic fines using cellphone banking.
View & Pay Traffic Fines On FNB ATM
If you don’t have access to a mobile phone or online banking, then you can still view and pay your traffic fines at any FNB ATM. The only drawback with this method is you’ll need your fines notice number. But, it’s still better than the conventional method.
- Find an FNB ATM near you here.
- Insert your FNB card
- Key in the pin
- At the bottom right, tap on ‘more options’
- Tap on ‘Transfer & Payments’
- Select ‘Traffic fines’
- Select ‘Proceed’
- Key in your fines notice number. This number should be displayed on the fine itself.
- Review the fine details, then tap ‘proceed’
- Select the account you would like to charge
- Review the transaction, then click ‘proceed’
Done and dusted, your fine is now fully paid off, and you should receive a receipt for your own use. There is nothing else you need to do from this point forward.

Back in my day, you had to wait in the for weeks before getting a traffic fine through the mail, and then you would still have to wait in long lines just to pay them. Today, you can view your traffic fines and pay them almost instantly right in the comfort of your own home.
