Pay the fine

Penalty and reminder notice

Act now to avoid extra costs.

You can pay your penalty or reminder notice:

If payment is made after the due date of the penalty reminder notice, further costs may apply.

A 0.4% card payment fee is automatically applied to all payments made with a credit card.

Note: do not pay if you were not the person responsible for the vehicle at the time of the offence. By law, you must nominate the other driver by filling out either a Statutory declaration - Individuals form (PDF) or Statutory declaration - Companies form (PDF) and sending it to us. Failure to nominate the driver before the penalty notice due date will result in a 'Penalty notice for failing to nominate' being issued.

If you can't afford to pay please contact us before the due date on the penalty reminder notice.

Contact us if you need a copy of your penalty notice.

To save the $65 you must contact us or fill out the Early enforcement to pay by instalments on government penalties - Penalty Notices form (PDF) to set up this arrangement before the due date on the penalty reminder notice.
