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.
To comply with your Notice of Final Demand you can:
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:
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.
If you'd like to discuss your options, contact Fines Victoria.
* Fine amounts and fees correct as of 1 July 2022. Amounts are adjusted in July each year.

The fastest way to deal with your fine is to pay it online. You will need your obligation number or payment reference number (these are usually found at the top-right corner of your fine).
You can also pay your fine by BPay, over the phone, in person or by post.
Always check the payment instructions on your fine before you pay. For some fines, payment must be made to the enforcement agency that issued it – not to Fines Victoria.
