Nominating the driver

For infringements by speed or red light camera

Privately owned vehicle

Traffic infringements are issued to the registered vehicle owner in the first instance.  If the owner was not the driver at the time of the offence, or the vehicle was sold prior to the offence, the owner has 28 days from the issue date of the 'Infringement Notice' to nominate and supply details of the driver or person in charge.  The owner should complete the statement ‘ Part 'F' on the infringement notice, with the full correct details (name, date of birth and current address) of the driver or person in charge at the time of the offence and mail it to:

Infringement Management & Operations
Locked Bag 35
Perth Business Centre
WA 6849

When returning information it must be accompanied with the original Infringement Notice.

If the nomination is not received by Police at Infringement Management and Operations within the 28 days then the owner is presumed to be the driver and liable to pay the fine and incur the demerit points.  Once a nomination is received then Police will issue a new infringement to that person who is then subject to the same requirement as outlined above.

If you have received a Final Demand Notice and you were not the driver, DO NOT pay the traffic infringement notice, please complete the Part F and forward the notice with the full details of the driver as above.  Another infringement notice will be issued to the nominated driver or person in charge.

NOTE: It is important that the person named on the infringement completes the process themselves. Read the infringement notice thoroughly and if uncertain of your obligations then contact Infringement Management & Operations on 92221408 for advice.

If the infringement is paid in error and a fraud has not been committed in relation to the payment, then the person named on the notice has no recourse for the matter to be overturned.
 

Business owned vehicle 

The responsible person for a business owned vehicle will receive a 'Notice Requesting Information' (NRI). This NRI is not an infringement in the first instance but a request to supply details of the driver or person in charge of a vehicle at the time of an alleged offence.  The business must complete Division 1 “Driver or person in charge - known” on the NRI, with the full correct details (name, date of birth and current address) of the driver or person in charge at the time of the offence and mail it to:

Infringement Management & Operations
Locked Bag 35
Perth Business Centre
WA 6849

Once the nominated driver or person in charge details are received then that person will be posted an infringement notice which is a modified penalty to that endorsed on the NRI. That person is then subject to the same requirement as outlined in Individual owned vehicle.

If the vehicle was stolen at the time of offence please complete Division 2.  If the driver is not known, please complete Division 3 and submit a Statutory Declaration as required on the Notice.

When returning information it must be accompanied with the original Notice Requesting Information.

If information is not returned to Infringement Management and Operations by the 'COMPLIANCE DATE' on the NRI then the NRI converts to an infringement for the offence of 'Failing to Comply' with the Notice Requesting Information and the company is liable for the penalty.  The monetary penalty on the rear of the notice for the company is double what an individual would have received, and must be paid by the endorsed 'PAYMENT DATE' to avoid further fees.

Court hearing

If you were the driver of the vehicle and wish to have an infringement notice dealt with by a court  DO NOT pay the infringement notice.

You should immediately and before the due date, advise in writing (preferably by way of a statutory declaration signed in the presence of a Justice of the Peace or police officer) to the Infringement Management & Operations of your election to have the matter heard by a court.

If your election is via the 'Court Election' portion on the Notice then you should complete that section in the presence of a police officer.

In all cases when advising in writing, the registration number of the vehicle, any reference numbers and a telephone contact number should be included. 

Demerit Point Suspensions

Contact the Department of Transport on 13 11 56 or your local licensing centre for any information about demerit points.

Obtaining a record of your traffic infringement notices

A five-year record of your traffic infringement notices (resulting from red light cameras, fixed speed cameras, multi novas and hand written notices) can be obtained from your local police station, or the WA Police Information Release Centre.
