NSW Fine/Demerit point information

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' at netrider.net.au started by Chillertek, Dec 17, 2014.

  1. Does anyone know where I can download a complete list of Fines/Demerit point offences for NSW, QLD, VIC, SA? I'd like a PDF copy if possible.
    I've checked the Rta websites but they only list speeding offences in most cases. I want more detailed info. Could this be found on some government websites? Shouldn't this information be free issue to public?

  2. Roads corporations do not provide a full list of offences, maybe due to the large number of offences. The fine amount is indexed annually as well.

  6. It has never been free, and it will end up costing you a lot more than $30 too. That is only the application fee.

    If your application is accepted, you then pay for the processing time, $30 per hour. In Vic, it is around the $24-25 mark.

    Now you know why no one bothers. Make do with the information that is publicly available.
