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.

All unpaid expiation notices issued prior to a Supreme Court judgement on 2 October 2020 and any offences detected from the date of the judgement will be suspended pending the outcome of the advice. For confirmation please contact 8463 4388 - do not call 131 444.
