Fines and infringements
We are responsible for administering and managing certain fines, for example:
- camera-detected offences (e.g. red light, speed, seatbelt and mobile phone)
- failure to comply with demand notices for overdue tolls.
We do not handle fines issued by other government departments or local councils.
Fines (or infringement notices) are issued by post or email.
How to finalise your fine
When you receive a fine, you have 28 days from the date of issue to:
- pay it in full
- set up a payment plan
- transfer it to someone else (nominate another driver)
- dispute it in court.
You can use the My account service to manage your fines, registrations and licences. You can also use this service to sign up to receive email reminders for your unpaid fines.
If you don’t finalise your fine
If you don’t finalise your fine by the due date, it may be referred to the State Penalties Enforcement Registry (SPER) for collection. You’ll be sent an enforcement order that includes a SPER fee, which will be added to the original fine. If you don’t pay the order by the due date, we may take enforcement action (e.g. licence suspension, wheel clamping).
Update your details
It’s your responsibility to let government agencies know when your address details change.

If you have received an enforcement order, contact SPER.
