Introduction

If you've received a fine (overdue fine, penalty or reminder notice), you can apply to have the matter heard and decided in court. 

You'll need to apply before the due date on your fine reminder notice. If you’ve already paid your fine, you’ll have 90 days from the date the fine was issued to go to court.

If your fine is overdue, see Apply to review an overdue fine in court

Before applying to go to court, you should consider:

Eligibility

  • you must be the person named on the fine notice, or the vehicle owner if there's no name on the notice, or
  • the authorised representative of the person named on the notice.

What you need

  • proof of your identity – you can use your address, date of birth or driver licence number
  • your residential address (PO boxes are not accepted) to post your Court Attendance Notice (CAN)
  • your fine notice number
  • the date of the offence.

How to apply

  1. Select the 'Apply online' button.
  2. Follow the prompts to complete your application.

Note: You can also apply by completing a PDF form or putting your request in writing. 

More information

  • Once you've submitted your application, you can return to the portal to check if a CAN has been posted to you.
  • Once you've received your CAN, it's too late to withdraw from attending court. If you've changed your mind, contact the court listed in your CAN and ask them about your options.
  • The court may apply additional costs when the matter is determined.
