The fines system in Victoria offers the option to pay a fixed penalty when an offence is committed, rather than going to court.
If you are caught breaking the law for some offences, you will be issued with a penalty in the form of an Infringement Notice (a fine).
Depending on the offence, you may receive a fine:
If you don't deal with your fine by the due date, the matter will become more serious and additional fees or costs may be added.
For more information on the fines lifecycle and process, see Infringement fines lifecycle (PDF).
This website only deals with fines being managed by Fines Victoria. This means you can submit a request for a review, a court hearing, more time to pay or to pay in instalments on this website.

If you have received a handwritten fine or your fine does not have an obligation number, and you would like to pay it on this website, by BPAY or by phone please call Fines Victoria on 03 9200 8111.
If you have received, for example, a public transport fine or a fine issued by a local council that is at infringement stage, you will need to deal with the enforcement agency that issued the fine – not Fines Victoria.
Fines Victoria can provide assistance in relation to an application for the Family Violence Scheme or Work and Development Permit from when an infringement is issued up until the expiry of a 7 Day Notice.
Always check your most recent notice for instructions on what to do, who to contact and how to pay.

The fastest way pay your fine is 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.
