Fines Victoria

Primary content

If you don't deal with your Infringement Notice by the due date, you will be issued with a Penalty Reminder Notice and a fee of $28.40* will be added to your fine.

This will give you an additional 14 days to deal with your fine before it becomes more serious.

Your options

You have the same options available as you did when your fine was an Infringement Notice. You can:

Fines issued by Victoria Police for alleged speeds of less than 10 km/h over the speed limit, may be eligible for an official warning in place of the fine. Information about official warnings is available on the Victoria Police website.

What happens if you don't act on your fine?

If you do not act by the due date on your Penalty Reminder Notice, your fine may progress and you may be issued with a Notice of Final Demand. If you were issued a fine for an offence but were not the driver of the vehicle at the time, you can no longer nominate the person who was driving once a Notice of Final Demand has been issued.

Things to note

Fines Victoria manages infringements at Penalty Reminder stage for some enforcement agencies. 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.

For a list of fines managed by Fines Victoria at Penalty Reminder stage visit About infringements.

If you have received, for example, a public transport fine or a fine issued by a local council that is at Penalty Reminder stage, you need to deal with the enforcement agency that issued the fine – not Fines Victoria. For these fines, Fines Victoria will only get involved once a Notice of Final Demand is issued.

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.

* Fine amounts and fees correct as of 1 July 2024. Amounts are adjusted in July each year.
