Parking.

Paying parking tickets

Parking tickets must be paid in full (no part payments can be accepted) within 28 days of issue of the infringement.

Where you can pay your ticket

You can pay parking tickets at our customer service agencies, post offices and some bookshops or pay online.

If your ticket is not paid within the 28 days we will send you a reminder. If you still do not pay within the time stated on the reminder, it will be handed over to the Fines and Collections Unit of the Department for Courts. Once your ticket is lodged with the Court, your ticket will also incur court costs and it will have to be paid through the Court's system.

Remember to update your address with MVRC

Every time you move, update your address with MVRC. If your reminder notice or ticket goes to your old address, you may forget about it and it may end up being referred to the Courts.

Contesting your ticket

If you have received a parking ticket and would like to explain the circumstances, fill out the Parking Ticket Explanation form providing as much detail as you can. We will assess your explanation and determine whether your ticket can be waived.
