Driver licence suspensions

If you have unpaid traffic fines or reparation you could have your driver licence suspended. This means you will not be able to legally drive in New Zealand or overseas. To avoid this happening to you, pay your fines now.

Making a payment from overseas

We've made it easier for you to pay court fines from overseas.


What happens if I don't pay?

If you don't pay your fines on time, there could be enforcement action taken.  We can:

  • cancel your driver licence
  • take your possessions and sell them
  • arrest you
  • stop you travelling overseas
  • clamp your car
  • take money from your wages or bank accounts
  • stop you getting a loan, credit card or hire purchase.

Every time we enforce any of the penalties above, it could cost you an extra $102 on top of your fine.

If you are having trouble making your payments you should call us on 0800 4 FINES to discuss your situation. Don’t wait for us to come to you.
