Step 1: You

What to expect

You can pay your parking tickets in person at our offices, or you pay them online. Tickets must be paid within 28 days after the ticket has been issued. 

You will need the parking ticket infringement number if you are paying online. If you are paying in person, bring your parking ticket with you. In both cases, you’ll need your vehicle’s registration number.

Fines vary depending on the type of infringement and length of time overstayed. As examples only, overdue parking starts at $12 and can go to over $57 depending on the length of time, while parking in a mobility parking space without authorisation has a fine of $150.

Our parking officers can also issue infringements for expired certificates of fitness (heavy motor vehicles), warrants of fitness and registrations. These fees range from $200 to $600 (note, all parking fees are set by the Government not by councils).

Frequently asked questions

What happens if I don't pay my parking infringement fine?

If you do not pay for your parking infringement fine within 28 days from the date the ticket was issued, a reminder notice may be sent to you.

If the fine is not paid within a further 28 days after the reminder notice date, it will be lodged with debt-collection agency Baycorp.

Important things to note if your fine is lodged with Baycorp:

  • Hamilton City Council cannot accept payment once the fine is lodged with Baycorp.
  • Hamilton City Council cannot review the fine once it is lodged with Baycorp.
  • You will need to make payment to Baycorp.
  • Baycorp do not add a fee to the fine.
  • Baycorp will assess if a part-payment arrangement is possible.

For more information about how to pay visit the Baycorp website.

If the infringement remains unpaid, the fine will then be passed over to the Ministry of Justice for collection with additional administration costs added to your fine.
