If your complaint is regarding any other aspect of the services we deliver, please see Help & contacts.

You can discuss your complaint with staff in our customer service team. They will try to resolve the problem without you having to make a formal complaint.

If you are not happy with their response, you can make a formal complaint.

How do I make a complaint?

The formal complaint procedure has three stages. Please provide any previous reference numbers that you may have.

Choose from one of the following three options to lodge a formal complaint:

  • Make a complaint online
  • Phone: 0343 222 2222 (TfL call charges)
    International : +44 343 222 2222
    Textphone: 020 7649 9123 if you have impaired hearing
    Please make sure you have all the relevant details to hand before calling.
  • Write to:
    Customer Services Manager
    Congestion Charging
    PO Box 344
    Darlington DL1 9QE

When you submit your complaint, let us know how you'd like us to respond (by email, post or by telephone). We'll normally send written replies within 10 working days.

If you're not satisfied with our response, you can write to:

Customer Correspondence Manager
TfL Road User Charging
4th Floor
5 Endeavour Square
London E20 1JN

We will respond to your complaint within 10 working days. If a full investigation is needed it may take a little longer, but we'll let you know the reasons for the delay.

If you are still unhappy after the second stage, you may ask us to conduct a final review by writing to:

General Manager
TfL Road User Charging
4th Floor
5 Endeavour Square
London E20 1JN

The General Manager will conduct a final review, usually within 10 working days, and will respond with our final position.

Complaints about Penalty Charge Notices

Do not use the complaints system for disputes over Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs). These have their own statutory representations and appeals procedure.

You can find more information about this procedure on the PCN itself.
