Parking Fines

​How to pay a parking ticket

Payments for parking tickets can be made online, in person at Taupo District Council or by post. You have 28 days to pay the fine from the date your parking infringement ticket was issued.

If you are late in paying your infringement it will be lodged with Taupo District court. Further action will be taken by the court and any payments should be made to them.

Pay online

 Pay your Parking Infringement online by credit card.

You will need to have your infringement number so we can correctly identify what the payment is for. If you have more than one infringement to pay, you need to pay for them separately as individual amounts and quote the relevant infringement notice number.

Pay in person

You can make payments at the Taupo District Council Offices at 46 Horomatangi Street or Council Service Centres in Turangi and Mangakino.

Frequently asked questions

What do I do if I want to appeal a parking ticket?

If you disagree with a parking infringement that has been issued to you, it is possible for you to appeal against it. An appeal needs to be made in writing. You can complete an online Parking Infringement Explanation Form and outline why you wish to appeal your ticket. All appeals are responded to in writing within 10 working days.

How long do I have to pay my parking fine?

You have 28 days from the date your parking infringement ticket was issued to pay the fine.

What happens if I do not pay my parking infringement fine?

If you do not pay for your parking infringement fine within 28 days from the date the ticket was issued, a legal reminder notice will be sent out to you. If the fine is not paid within a further 28 days, the fine will then be passed to the court for collection and an additional $30.67 gets added to your fine. This additional fee can increase by $100 if not paid within 28 days to the court.
