Introduction

If you've received a penalty notice but weren't the driver or person responsible for the offence, in order to transfer the penalty you'll need to nominate whomever was responsible.

Some offences, such as camera detected offences and parking in a school zone, will apply demerit points to a driver licence, so it's important the correct person is named. For offences such as littering from a vehicle, you should name the person responsible, even if you were the driver at the time. 

If the penalty notice is under a company name, then an authorised person from your company must nominate the driver or person responsible. 

What you need

  • your email address and phone number
  • your penalty notice number and the date of the offence
  • the details of the other driver or person responsible, including their:
    • name, address and date of birth
    • driver licence number and state/country of issue
    • passport number and country of issue, if you're nominating an international driver. 
  • your organisation's Roads and Maritime Services customer number (if applicable)
  • acknowledgement that you're aware of the penalties for making a false nomination.

  1. Select the 'Nominate online' button.
  2. Enter your penalty notice number and the date of the offence.
  3. Check the 'I'm not a robot box'.
