If you receive an Infringement Notice

An Infringement Notice includes details of how to pay your fine, and what to do if you want to challenge it.

If you don’t pay your fine on time, we may refer the matter to the Fines Enforcement Registry, and your motor vehicle or driver’s licence could be suspended. If the infringement process reaches this stage, you may face additional costs.
