Pay a speeding ticket or traffic infringement
You pay speeding tickets and Police infringement notices (eg for not wearing a seatbelt) directly to the Police.
Pay your fine
You have to pay Police infringements in full as a single payment.
If you don’t pay on time
If you don’t pay by the due date, the fine will automatically be transferred to the courts and you’ll have to pay court costs as well as the original fine. You can also be banned from driving.
If you want to dispute the fine
You can write to or email Police to:
- ask for the ticket to be reconsidered
- tell them why you don’t think you’re responsible for the infringement and request a court hearing
- request a court hearing even if you admit you’re responsible for the infringement (you might have evidence to share that you think will change the penalty)
- ask for a copy of a traffic camera photo.
You’ll need to include:
- your notice number
- the details of your dispute
- an explanation of the outcome you’re looking for.
If you request a court hearing, someone from the court will contact you with details. Note: court costs may be added to your original penalty.
Parking tickets are managed by your local council — you’ll need to pay any parking fines directly to them.
