Infringement paid but you received a reminder notice

If you have paid your infringement and then received a reminder notice, please ignore the reminder notice.

If you would like to confirm that we have received your payment, please contact us.


Receipts

We do not issue GST receipts because fines do not incur GST.


Infringement notice process

The infringement notice process is set out in various statutes, the Land Transport Act 1998 and the Summary Proceedings Act 1957. These detail the way infringement notices may be served and the administrative process. Visit the Ministry of Justice website for more information on the fines and infringements process.
