Fines and infringement notices

There is no conviction recorded against you when you have been given an infringement notice (if you pay the fine or not). However, if you elect to take the matter to court, and the court finds you guilty (or you plead guilty) a conviction may be recorded.

If you get an infringement notice for a traffic offence this will show up on your RTA traffic record. Although they do not amount to convictions, these matters can be taken into account by a court when sentencing you for a traffic offence.

If you have been charged with a traffic offence, or are seeking further information on a Criminal or Traffic legal matter, call North Shore Criminal Law on (02) 9955 2298 or our 24 hour Emergency Service on 0400 44 64 24 to speak to an Accredited Criminal Law Specialist.
