Dealing with an infringement notice

If you receive a fine, you must pay or take other action by the due date. Ignoring a fine will become serious and costly. The options below are available to you if your fine is at infringement notice stage.

Options to deal with your infringement notice:

If you don’t pay

If you do not pay your fine and you ignore all reminders, the matter becomes serious and costly. The Infringements Court may issue an enforcement order and/or an infringement warrant, giving the Sheriff power to enforce that warrant.

The Sheriff can enforce an unpaid infringement warrant by:

  • the seizure and sale of your property
  • suspension of your driver licence
  • suspension of your vehicle's registration
  • non-renewal of your vehicle's registration
  • wheel clamping of your vehicle
  • your arrest
