What to do if you're charged with a 'minor' traffic offence

The majority of traffic and driving offences result in a fine and/or loss of demerit points. 

A notice to pay a fine is called an infringement notice.

If you have any issues, you should carefully read the infringement notice and get in touch with the prosecution office that issued the ticket. More details are available on the VicRoads website.

You can choose to have your traffic offence heard in the Magistrates’ Court if you don’t want it handled as an infringement. Visit the find a court page to get in touch with a court.

You might want to ask the prosecuting agency to reconsider the case before you appear in court. For additional information, visit the Fines Victoria website.

Before going to court, you should seek legal advice. Going to court is serious, and if you choose to contest the infringement, you could lose your licence, get a criminal record, or pay a higher fine. You should speak with an experienced traffic lawyer before challenging an infringement notice.

You can request a time extension here.

If you challenge an infringement in court, you can’t change your mind. In other words, you can’t choose to pay the infringement once the matter has began.
