What to do

Collect your fines together

  • Group your fines together by stage (penalty notice, penalty reminder notice, overdue fine) or organise them by due date: put the most urgent on the top of the pile
  • You can also get details about your fines from Revenue NSW.

Collect supporting information

If you have other information that proves that you shouldn’t have got some of your fines, collect that too. It may be things like:

  • Proof that you weren’t the driver/responsible person of your car when the fine was issued or that you haven’t committed the offence
  • A doctor’s letter proving that you have a special circumstance that means you shouldn’t have got the fine 
  • A letter from a social worker explaining what your situation is
  • Bank statements or evidence of your income
  • Other evidence that means you can’t pay the fine
