Fines Victoria

Primary content

A Notice of Final Demand is issued if your court fine is in default, which means that payment was not received by the due date on your Court Fine Collection Statement.

If you ignore your Court Fine Collection Statement and the due date for payment has passed, the matter may be registered with us.

We will then send you a Notice of Final Demand and a fee of $137.80* will be added to your fine. You must comply with the notice within 21 days.

Your options

To comply with your Notice of Final Demand you can:

If you don't do anything

If you do not do something about your court fine by the due date, we may take one or more of the following enforcement actions:

  • suspend your driver licence / learner permit
  • prevent you from obtaining or renewing a driver licence / learner permit
  • prevent you from transferring or renewing a vehicle registration
  • prevent you from registering a vehicle
  • make a deduction(s) from your bank account, wage or money owed to you
  • charge and sell land you own.

We may also apply to the Magistrates' Court to issue an Enforcement Warrant. If this happens, a Sheriff's Officer has the power to wheel clamp your vehicle, remove the numberplates from your vehicle, seize and sell your personal property or arrest you to appear before a judge or magistrate.
