Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
I have received an infringement despite having purchased a pass, or operating an account, that registers my vehicle to travel on the toll roads.
For all commercial disputes relating to the status of your pass or account, please contact the relevant toll company to discuss.
If you wish to have the infringement reviewed by the Traffic Camera Office:
I did not receive a late toll invoice from the tolling company.
It is not recommended to rely on the issue of late toll invoices - this is a courtesy only and provides a final opportunity for payment before the invoice advances to infringement stage.
Late toll invoices are mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. If the late toll invoice is not received it may be due to outdated or incorrect details on recorded in relation to the vehicle.
To confirm current registration and address details contact VicRoads directly.
