Once you have registered and added a payment method, you can order an RFID access card, allowing you to access all CPS charge points. An initial cost of £20 applies to order an access card, which is renewed annually. Once payment for your ChargePlace Scotland access card has been received, it should arrive within 5-10 business days of being despatched.
