State Courts fines
1. Minor Traffic Offences with an offer of composition
Anyone who receives a traffic ticket or notice from the Traffic Police Department, Land Transport Authority, Housing and Development Board or Urban Redevelopment Authority for a minor traffic offence may use the AXS station to settle the fine. A traffic offence is considered minor if there is an offer of composition stated on the traffic ticket or notice. There is an offer of composition if the ticket or notice states a sum of money which you can pay to settle the ticket or notice without going to court. If the offer of composition has expired, users can use the Automated Traffic Offence Management System (ATOMS) to settle their tickets or notices by pleading guilty to the traffic offence stated in their ticket or notice and pay a court fine. With ATOMS, users can settle their traffic tickets at their convenience, and there is no need to go to court.
ATOMS is run on AXS stations which are located island-wide. You can call the AXS hotline at 6560 2727 or visit their website at http://www.axs.com.sg to find the AXS station nearest to you.
Please note that the operating hours for the AXS hotline are 8.00 am to 10.00 pm daily (including Sundays and public holidays). If you encounter difficulties in using ATOMS, you may also call the AXS hotline at 6560 2727 or assistance.
How to Use ATOMS
Three days after you receive a traffic ticket or notice that has an offer of composition, proceed to an AXS station to pay the amount within the period stipulated. Check the ticket or notice to see when the offer expires. You must pay the offer of composition before it expires. Check the identification number stated on your ticket or notice. If you are a Singapore citizen or PR, your NRIC number will be reflected. If you are a foreigner or a company, your identification number (which may be your passport number, work permit number or company registration number) can be found under the "DL/NRIC" column in our ticker or notice.
Step 2:Follow the instructions given and touch the screen of the station to enter certain numbers or indicate your choice when you are asked any questions. To make payment, you will need a NETS ATM card from one of the following participating banks - POSB Bank, DBS Bank, OCBC Bank, Standard Chartered Bank and United Overseas Bank. Credit cards are not accepted.
Step 3:If the offer of composition has expired, you can still use ATOMS to settle your ticket or notice by pleading guilty to the traffic offence stated in the summons or notice and pay a court fine without going to court. However, you must do so by 5 pm on the court date stated in your ticket or notice.
If you encounter difficulties in using ATOMS, you can call the AXS hotline at 6560 2727 for assistance.

2. Regulatory Offences with an offer of composition
Anyone who receives a notice from an enforcement agency (e.g.
NEA, CPF Board) for a regulatory offence may use the AXS station to settle the
fine. A regulatory offence is considered minor if there is an offer of
composition stated on the notice. There is an offer of composition if the
notice states a sum of money which you can pay to settle the notice without
going to Court.
