A fine is issued when a road safety camera detects a speeding, red light or an unregistered vehicle offence.

- pay in
- nominate another
- request an internal
- elect to go to
- apply for an extension of
- apply to pay by
If you have been fined for travelling more than 25 km/h over the limit some of these options may not be available to you.
Victoria Police can withdraw a fine and issue an official warning in its place. Each application for an official warning is judged on a case-by-case basis.

If you do not take action
If you don’t pay your fine and ignore all reminders to pay, Fines Victoria may issue an enforcement warrant and the results can be quite costly. The Sheriff can enforce an unpaid enforcement warrant by:
- seizing and selling your property
- suspending your driver licence
- suspending your vehicle's registration
- preventing the renewal of your vehicle's registration
- wheel clamping your vehicle
- as a final option, arresting you.
For more information, visit the sheriff operations in Victoria on the Department of Justice and Community Safety website.
The Family Violence is an option if your experience of family violence has substantially contributed to your fines.
Support is also for vulnerable or disadvantaged people and those needing further assistance.
