What is a Traffic Offence?

A traffic offence is any offence committed in a vehicle and given to you by the Victorian Police. Offences include speeding, drink driving, driving while suspended or disobeying road rules.

What happens if I commit a Traffic Offence?

You will be issued a notice by the police which may have a number of different requirements. Depending on the severity of the act involved, you may be arrested, you may be issued with a Summons to appear in court or you may be issued with an administrative letter requiring you to pay a fine.

Will I have a criminal record?

Traffic offences are criminal offences and can result in you having a criminal record. Minor offences which are dealt with administratively will not attract a criminal conviction, although drink driving offences and excessive speeding offences may result in a criminal record.
