If you can't pay your fine in full by the due date, you can ask to pay by instalments.

If you already have a payment arrangement, and you have received another fine, you should complete and submit the pay by instalment form, using the details for your new fine to log in and apply.
As part of the online application process, the form will display the fines included on your existing payment arrangement – leave them there; do not exclude them from this new application.
Fines Victoria will then cancel the old payment arrangement and set up a new payment arrangement that includes all your fines – the new fine and your earlier fines.
Once a decision has been made, you will receive a notification by post explaining the outcome of your application.
If your application is successful, you will receive information about how to pay your instalments by mail. If your application is not successful, you contact us for information on your options.
If you wish to enter into a direct debit agreement, please call Fines Victoria on (03) 9200 8111 (1300 369 819 for regional callers) after you have received notification that your payment arrangement is successful, and we will set up your direct debit over the phone.
If you have set up a direct debit arrangement with a bank/financial institution account, you should download and read the Direct Debit Service Agreement.

If you do not pay it or do something about it, a Penalty Reminder Notice is issued for the fine and the cost of the fine will go up. You should pay the fine or contact the agency that issued the fine to talk about your options. Their contact number is on the notice you received.
