An expiation notice allows you to pay a fee instead of going through the court system.

Expiation notices can be issued by South Australia Police for:

  • exceeding the speed limit
  • failing to stop at a red light
  • having an unregistered vehicle
  • not having current third party insurance
  • general road traffic offences
  • other offences.

If your expiation notice was issued to you by a police officer as a result of being detected speeding (through the use of a Lidar traffic speed analyser) do not pay the notice.


  • email your notice number and contact details to, or
  • write to SAPOL at Expiation Notice Branch, GPO Box 2029, Adelaide SA 5001.

SAPOL will assess the expiation notice and advise you of the outcome in due course.

The notice will be suspended and no demerit points will be lost pending the review.

Due to the time required to review the notices your patience is appreciated.

Please do not call 131444 regarding this matter.
