Scam alert

We are aware of an email, phone and mail scam related to fines. More information                                                                                                

Were you under 18 when the fine was issued?

Enforcement costs for someone under 18

We have reduced the initial enforcement costs from $65 to $25 for clients under the age of 18. No further enforcement costs are associated with these fines. Any costs imposed by a court are not regarded as enforcement costs and therefore must be paid.

Driving restrictions

If you were under 18, driving restrictions can only be applied if your fine was for a traffic offence, such as speeding or driving without a licence. If restrictions are imposed, no enforcement costs will be added.

Driving restrictions cannot be imposed if the fine was for a non–traffic offence.

What happens if you don't pay the fine?

If you don’t pay the fine, we can seize goods belonging to you, garnishee your bank account or wages, or issue a community service order.

How do you check that the correct costs have been added to your fine?

When contacting us to enquire about a particular fine, you will need to supply the overdue fine number.

You may be required to prove your date of birth. Acceptable documentation includes a birth certificate, passport, travel concession card, proof of age card, or a letter from an acceptable third party such as a Justice of the Peace, a police officer, a school or teacher, doctor, etc.

Contact us to check what costs and restrictions have been applied.

What if costs and driving restrictions have been wrongly applied?

As soon as we determine you were under 18 at the time of the offence, we will assess the costs and restrictions applied to your overdue fines and remove them where appropriate.
