Delivery of the fine notice
09/23/2019

The fine notice will be sent within five business days from the identification of the misdemeanour. Fine notice to a natural person is generally sent by mail to the address recorded in the population register. If the person responsible for the power-driven vehicle does not live at the address entered in the register and his/her actual place of residence is unknown, then the body conducting extra-judicial proceedings will publish the fine notice in the official publication Ametlikud Teadaanded. When publishing the fine notice in Ametlikud Teadaanded, the data disclosed on the person responsible for the power-driven vehicle is limited to his/her first and last name and ID code or date of birth. A notice of fine shall be deemed to be publicly delivered after the lapse of thirty days from the date it was published in Ametlikud Teadaanded, or when the person confirms in the information system of Ametlikud Teadaanded, that he/she has received the fine notice. If the person has activated his/her official e-mail address in the state portal eesti.ee, then the fine notice shall be first sent electronically to this address. Electronic sending of fine notices requires that the person holds an activated e-mail address in the form of IDcode@eesti.ee, which is directed to another e-mail address, and an ID card with valid certificate, which is needed to open the encrypted fine notice.

Notice of fine to a legal person, state or local government authority and legal person governed by law shall be sent to its registered address by simple form letter or electronically. In case of sending the notice of fine electronically, protection of the notice from third persons and confirmation of the receipt of the fine notice is not requested. A document sent to a legal person, state or local government authority and legal person governed by law to its registered address or e-mail address disclosed in the register shall be deemed to be received after the lapse of thirty days from its sending.
