After your hearing, ECB will mail the decision to you. If you disagree with the decision, you may file an appeal. Please note you must pay the fine in order to appeal. If you win your appeal, you will be issued a refund.
|File an Appeal Online|
The easiest way to appeal a decision is by using ECB’s electronic form (in PDF) because it will send the appeal to ECB and the agency that issued you the ticket, at the same time.
