Vehicle infringements Vehicle infringements

Vehicle infringements are issued for offences related to vehicle condition, parking, and the use of bus and transit lanes.

Without parking and road rules our streets would be chaotic as people clog bus lanes or park wherever they want for as long as they want. Rules, fines and infringements are tools used in most cities to help moderate motorist behaviour, reduce traffic congestion and assist in the sharing of parking spaces.

The rules for road use and parking are mostly made at a national level, with some specific rules made for local conditions. The amount for fines is set at a national level.

Auckland Transport's Parking Officers are legally warranted to provide enforcement services for the rules that apply throughout Auckland.


View infringement details and photos

View infringement details and images online (if any photos are available).

You will need to know your infringement notice number and the vehicle registration (licence plate number).

After you have viewed the details, you can choose to pay or query the infringement.


Vehicle ownership

When a vehicle is bought and sold, both the buyer and seller are required by law to notify the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) immediately. However, there are times when a vehicle changes ownership and the seller of the vehicle completes their section of the paperwork but the buyer does not, leaving the vehicle in the registered ownership of the seller.

See the NZTA website for instructions of what buyers and sellers must do to change vehicle ownership.

Use this handy tool on the NZTA website to check and update your address with NZTA.

If you receive an infringement notice for a vehicle after you had notified NZTA of the sale of the vehicle, you can request to transfer liability of the infringement to the new owner.


Using bus lanes

Bus lanes play an important role in keeping Auckland moving by prioritising buses in peak hours.

Bus lane monitoring is increasing, so watch our video to learn when you can use a bus lane and how to do it right.
