Infringement notices

An infringement notice is a penalty for breaking the law. Council issues infringement notices for a number of offences under various legislation.

How an infringement notice is served

We can serve an infringement notice by:

  • delivering it to you in person
  • sending it to you by post at your last known place of residence or business
  • by fixing or placing the notice on your vehicle in a conspicuous manner (if your vehicle was involved in the alleged offence).

Non-payment of infringements

It is important to pay your infringements by the due date on the infringement notice.

If you fail to make payment by the due date, you’ll receive a Penalty Reminder Notice and additional costs will be added to your fine.

Paying your infringement notice

There are many options to pay your fine: 


Payments can be made online by credit card via our payments page.


Pay by Visa or Mastercard on 1300 668 153.


Send cheque or money order to:

Knox City Council
511 Burwood Highway,
Wantirna South VIC 3152.

Ensure that you write your infringement notice number on back of cheque/money order.

Payment is not made until the cheque is cleared.

In person

Knox City Council Civic Centre

Please note that payments by Visa or Mastercard incur a surcharge.

Payment plans or extensions

You may be eligible to pay under a payment plan if you have a:

  • Commonwealth Government (Centrelink) Pensioner Concession Card
  • Department of Veterans’ Affairs Pensioner Concession Card or Gold Card
  • Centrelink Health Care Card (all types including non-means tested)
  • Work and Development Permit.

If you do not have any of these concessions but can demonstrate financial hardship then you may be able to ask for an extension of time to pay your infringement.
