Frequently asked questions

How long do I have to pay my parking fine?

You have 28 days from the date your parking infringement ticket was issued to pay the fine.

What happens if I do not pay my parking infringement fine?

If you do not pay for your parking infringement fine within 28 days from the date the ticket was issued, a legal reminder notice will be sent out to you.

If the fine is not paid within a further 28 days, the fine will then be passed to the court for collection and an additional $30 gets added to your fine. This additional fee can increase by $100 if not paid within 28 days to the court.
