You should apply to nominate if:
- someone else was the driver responsible for the vehicle at the time of the offence
- you sold the vehicle to someone else or disposed of the vehicle before the offence date
- you believe the vehicle or number plates displayed on the vehicle were stolen
- you were incorrectly nominated as the responsible person.
If your fine is for an excessive speed offence, you’ll need to complete and send your application within 28 days of your Infringement Notice issue date, before your licence is automatically suspended.
You cannot nominate another driver if:
- you were issued with an on-the-spot fine at the time of the offence
- your fine is for a drink or drug-driving offence
- your vehicle was unregistered at the time of the offence.
Your nomination may not be accepted if you can’t properly identify the person responsible.
