How to pay

Pay by credit or debit card now


  1. Pay with a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card. 
  2. This service is provided by Westpac who charges a convenience fee of 1.9 percent. New Zealand Police does not receive any part of this fee. Find out how much your convenience fee will be.
  3. Use a decimal point and not a comma when entering fee amounts (ie. $80.00 and not $80,00 which would lead to an $8000 payment).
  4. If you are using a credit or debit card outside of New Zealand, any currency conversion will be done according to the terms and conditions of the card. There may be currency conversion or other fees charged by your card issuer.


Payment must be made in full
Part payments are not accepted. Either the total amount owing on the infringement notice must be paid, or the full amount of an individual offence. Part paid fees will be returned and the infringement notice will remain due for payment, in one full amount, by the due date.

Pay by the due date
If the fee is not paid by the final due date, the infringement notice is automatically filed in court and it becomes a fine for collection by the Ministry of Justice. They will send you a Notice of Fine and you must contact or pay the fine to the Ministry of Justice. A court cost will be added to the fine when it gets filed in Court.
