Summary of options for dealing with infringement notices

The options a client has for dealing with fines that have not yet been registered with Fines Victoria are as follows:

  1. Write to the enforcement agency requesting an internal review of the decision to serve an infringement notice and/or a withdrawal of the outstanding infringement notices pursuant to s 22 of the Infringements Act 2006 (Vic) (IA). 
  2. Elect to have the matter heard and determined at the Magistrates' Court pursuant to s 16 or 30 of the IA. 
  3. Write to the enforcement agency asking for a payment plan to be put in place, or for an extension your client to pay or both pursuant to s 46 of the IA. Alternatively, your client can write to Fines Victoria asking for a payment arrangement.
  4. If it relates to a driving offence, and your client was not the driver, nominate another driver.
  5. If a client is an eligible person enlist an accredited agency or an accredited health practitioner to make an application for a WDP [hyperlink to page 6.7 ‘Work and Development Permit Scheme'] on behalf of the client, and to supervise the participation of the client in activities under a WDP.
  6. If a client is eligible, apply for the fine to be withdrawn under the Family Violence Scheme [hyperlink to 6.8 Family Violence Scheme]. 
  7. Pay in full.
