Making a payment in full
There are various payment methods available to pay your court fine or expiation notice in full payment. They are:

The Fines Payment Unit cannot accept payment in full for expiation notices that are not owing to the court. Payment must be made according to the instructions on the expiation notice issued by the issuing authority.
If you have any questions relating to Police expiation notices please contact the Expiation Notice Branch directly on +61 8 8463 4388.
See the Fines Payment Unit’s common issuing authorities for contact details.
Once the expiation notice becomes enforced by the court full payment can be made to the Fines Payment Unit.
If you are unable to pay in full there are different options available depending on whether it is for an expiation notice or a court fine.
I can’t afford to pay my Expiation notice in full
If you cannot afford to pay your expiation notice in full to the issuing authority by the due date you may be eligible to apply for relief to pay by installments.
