You can request a review of your penalty notice if:

  • you believe a mistake has been made, or
  • you want to apply for leniency because there were special circumstances that led to the offence.

The review may lead to the penalty continuing to stand, your being let-off with a caution, or the penalty being cancelled.

Request a review
  • your penalty notice number
  • the date of the offence, and
  • any supporting evidence.

You can find examples of supporting evidence in the Review Guidelines.

Request a review
  1. Select the 'Request a review' button.
  2. Enter your penalty notice number, the date of the offence, and the security check code (a code which appears on screen).
  3. Select 'Submit'.
  4. Complete the required fields.
Request a review
  • Once you've submitted your request, you can return to the portal to track its progress.
  • If the review is unsuccessful, you can request to have the matter heard in court.
  • You can't request a review and request to have the matter heard in court, at the same time, as this will cancel the review. Your matter will then only be heard in court.
