Primary content

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

If you're eligible, you'll be able to combine your outstanding fines into a payment arrangement, and then choose to pay it off in monthly or fortnightly payments.

Who can apply to pay by instalments?

If you're an individual or a company, you can apply to pay your outstanding fine amount by instalments.

Your application may be assessed based on your:

  • outstanding fine amount
  • income
  • financial status
  • payment history
  • any hardship that you are experiencing.

When you already have a payment arrangement

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 form completion process, the form will display your older fines on your existing payment arrangement – leave them there; do not exclude them from this new application.

We 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. We will confirm the new details with you by post.

What happens after you apply?

Once a decision has been made, you'll receive a notification in the post explaining the outcome of your application.

If your application is successful, you'll receive information about how to pay your instalments.

If you wish to enter into a direct debit agreement, please call Fines Victoria on (03) 9200 8111 (1300 369 819 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.
