Disputing a parking ticket
If you wish to challenge a parking ticket, you or your agent can call Parking Operations at 905-338-4394 to book an appointment for a first attendance interview. Most ticket disputes are resolved during this interview.
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the interview, you can request a formal trial. You or your agent must come in person to Town Hall to fill out court documents to start the process. Only forms that are completed in full and are clearly written are accepted. The registered owner of the vehicle and the person requesting the trial will be notified by mail of the trial date. The trial will take place at:
Ontario Court of Justice, Provincial Offences Office
Halton Court Services
2051 Plains Road East
Burlington, ON L7R 5A5
Oakville Parking Operations patrols and enforces parking by-laws throughout the town 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please remember that if you do not pay the final fine imposed, your Ontario vehicle permit sticker will not be renewed until the fine and all court costs and fees have been paid. Information may be provided to a credit bureau.
Call Parking Operations at 905-338-4394 to request enforcement for vehicles that you see parking illegally. Please have the location and a description of the vehicle ready. This number is available 24 hours a day. After business hours this number connects you with a voicemail service where you can leave a message for enforcement.
The town's parking by-laws and regulations apply to roads in new subdivisions regardless of the road being assumed or unassumed.
