Fines: if you can't pay in full
Changes due to coronavirus (COVID-19)
If you need to pay in person, you must call 1800 111 530 first.
If you can’t pay your fine in full, you may be able to arrange to pay over a period of time.
This can be either:
- paying by instalments
- or arranging to pay by a certain date.
The Fines Recovery Unit can help arrange deductions from your Centrelink payments.
If you get another fine you will need to contact the Fines Recovery Unit to discuss making a separate agreement.
