A Notice of Final Demand can be issued if you don’t pay your fine, or comply with a payment arrangement, 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 fine may be registered with us.

We will then send you a Notice of Final Demand and a fee of $147.10* will be added to your fine. You must comply with the notice within 21 days.

If you don't do anything

If you do not do anything about your Notice of Final Demand by the due date, we may take one or more of the following enforcement actions:

  • prevent you from transferring your vehicle registration out of your name
  • make a deductions from your bank account, wage or money owed to you
