You have 30 days after the date you received your statement of offence to submit your plea. If you fail to do so, your file will be transmitted to the Court and a “judgment by default” will be rendered (without further notice to you). You will be found guilty.
A notice of judgment specifies:
the fine amount;
the costs (costs are added to the original amount indicated on the statement);
You must correct your address if the wrong address appears on your statement or correspondences, or if you move. Fill out the Address change form (PDF 73 Kb) or contact the Bureau des infractions et amendes.
