Review a Parking Expiation
You may request a review of your Parking Expiation if at the time the Parking Expiation Notice was issued:
- you were not the driver of the vehicle;
- you had sold or disposed of the vehicle and are no longer the registered owner;
- your vehicle was stolen;
- or you believe you have a valid reason and should not have been issued with an expiation
What you need to know:
If you were not the driver at the time of the offence
If you own the vehicle but were not driving the vehicle at the time of the offence, you must provide us with a completed Statutory Declaration nominating the driver. You are required to sign the declaration before a Justice of the Peace and return it to us within 21 days of the date of your expiation notice.
For us to be able to put the Parking Expiation into the driver’s name, we legally require the full name of the driver and their current address or last known location. As this is a legal document, we cannot process the change without these details.
If the driver occurred multiple expiations over a few days, instead of listing each expiation, you can list the dates that they were in possession of the vehicle.
If you are no longer the registered owner of the vehicle.
If you recently sold or disposed of the vehicle and were not the registered owner at the time of the offence, you can submit a copy of the Disposal Notice or a Statutory Declaration with the new owner's full name and address using the Online Form. We’ll then transfer the responsibility for the Expiation Notice into the correct vehicle owner's name.

If your vehicle was stolen
Complete the form and include
- the police report number,
- your full name and contact number (in case we need extra information),
- and the vehicle registration number.
We will then contact the police who will be able to confirm the dates the vehicle was stolen and the date it was recovered. If the expiation occurred during these times, you will not be responsible for the Expiation Notice. If you did not report your vehicle stolen at the time, then it is unlikely that we will withdraw the expiation.
If you believe you have a valid reason why you should not be fined
If you believe that you should not have received a Parking Expiation Notice, you can lodge a request to review your parking expiation.
In most situations, you will be required to submit supporting evidence as it is unlikely we will withdraw a Parking Expiation without it.
How to request a Review
Submit your request using the Online Form below.
Once you have submitted your request, along with any requested documentation, we will conduct a full review with consideration to your circumstances.
The Parking Expiation will be placed on hold and no further fees will apply whilst we respond to your request. All reviews will be responded to within 15 business days.
If you wish to dispute the allegation rather than dispute it, you can elect to be prosecuted for the offence and have the matter dealt with in the Magistrate’s Court.
You will need to complete the Election to be Prosecuted form found on the rear of the original Expiation Notice. You can return the completed form to GPO Box 1732, Adelaide SA 5001.
