Fines Victoria

Primary content

If you do not do anything about your Infringement Notice and Penalty Reminder Notice and the due date for payment has passed, the agency that issued the fine may register the matter with us.

We will then send you a Notice of Final Demand and a further fee of $135.40* will be added to your fine. This means your fine amount is now $161.60 more than when it was first issued to you. You must comply with this notice within 21 days.

Your options

To comply with your Notice of Final Demand, your options are:

If the fine is for a traffic offence and you were not driving at that time, it is now too late to nominate the responsible driver. You can no longer nominate once a Notice of Final Demand has been issued (except in limited circumstances, such as family violence situations).

If you don't do anything about your Notice of Final Demand

If you do not do anything 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.

*This amount is adjusted each July.
