Pay by instalments (fines of $200 or over)

If your parking fine totals $200 or more, you may apply to pay by instalments by following the steps below:

  1. The application must be in writing and include your current address, phone number. Please ensure you include vehicle registration and infringement number details. Send your application to or post to:
    City Parking
    City of Gold Coast
    PO Box 5042

  2. You will need to make an initial payment of $60 or more in person at one of our customer service centres, by BPAY® or post using the how to pay details on your fine. Attach proof of payment to your written application.

If your application is approved, the State Penalties Enforcement Registry (SPER) will send you a payment plan. Failure to comply with the payment plan will result in enforcement by SPER and may incur additional fees.
